The American Landscape – Bethlehem Steel
As a sub-series of The American Landscape, these pictures look at the remains of this huge steel plant that helped build and defend our nation. The exploration and photography is also a way for me to connect with and process the memory of my father and Lehigh University, where he attended engineering school. Dad loved Lehigh and its presence was central to his life and our family. There’s a strong connection between the plant and Lehigh’s engineering history, and by way of that, with my father’s memory. That is what I’m exploring and attempting to visualize in these pictures.
