William Miller: Untitled. Gowanus Canal

Work / Photography

Photographer William Miller captures the unexpected abstract beauty on a New York canal’s surface

Last year photographer William Miller wowed us with his Ruined Polaroids project, a stunning study of colour and texture produced using a broken Polaroid SX-70. The same unerring eye for finding visual gold in unlikely places is present in his newest body of work, Gowanus Canal. William is able to capture some real beauty in the scummy surface of this Brooklyn waterway, strange patterns and colours that take on the ethereal quality of abstract art under his expert lens. Flotsam and jetsam has never looked so good.
