Collision Bend - 1968

One of my first series of photos that I shot solely for the purpose of making a print series. They were originally shot on a rather nice early Saturday morning drive in August of 2014 through the Cleveland Flats and Industry Valley sections of the city.


The title comes from a specific bend in the Cuyahoga River in the Cleveland Flats that was notorious for a lot of collisions between ships navigating the river through the former industrial hotbed of the city.
