Made in Venice, Italy in Tintoretto's studio. Actually the place of his birth, and has been operating as a print studio under the his namesake (though no family relation) for years.

The Grand Gowanus, no. 1 (no. 2, no, 3, no. 4), 2008, Giclée prints, Edition of 10, 4 1/8 x 11 inches
Sets of all 4 prints presented in custom paper portfolio.
I have photographed the Gowanus Canal of Brooklyn New York and the canals of Venice Italy and paired them together here so they show a very similar vantage point, forcing them to almost be viewed as one. The Gowanus has been compared to Venice time and again, yet this comparison seems little more than commercially driven optimism. The photographs, made as stereo prints present the images side-by-side are intended to allow a third image to appear in 3-dimension in the mind’s eye of the viewer.
