Mill River by Joseph Gerhard displays a contemplative look at a one-mile stretch of the river from the Elie Whitney Dam to the Wilbur Cross High School, in New Haven Connecticut. This manmade artifact appears as a natural entity within the surrounding landscape. Gerhard’s striking black-and-white images are both meditative and informative of how man and environment coexist, both positively and negatively. Mill River is an ode to man's ability to coexist and in some respects protect the natural environment.
