TAKE ME TO THE RIVER: PHOTOGRAPHS OF ATLANTIC RIVERS. Michael Kolster. George F. Thompson Publishing, Staunton, 2016. 240 pp. 30 x 30 cm. ISBN 9781938086427 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: Take Me to the River explores four post-industrial rivers that flow into the Atlantic Ocean -- the Androscoggin (Maine/New Hampshire), Schulykill (Pennsylvania), James (Virginia), and Savannah (Georgia/South Carolina) -- as they emerge from two centuries of use and neglect. With vastly improved water quality in each river since enactment of the 1972 Clean Water Act, public affection has gradually increased as memories of foul smells and fetid water fade. Today, these rivers still carry the legacies of longstanding pollution in their currents and sediments, yet they have become waterways, renewed and rediscovered, that our grandparents never could have envisioned. Take Me to the River comprises four portfolios of ambrotypes of these rivers, from source to sea. Three extensive essays offer different perspectives on ways of seeing and thinking about these places: one by the photographer on the collodion process; a historical view by Alison Nordström, the former Senior Curator of Photography at the George Eastman House, on the importance of Kolster's work; and an environmental history of Atlantic rivers by the noted historian Matthew Klingle.
