WHAT: Emery Roth will show slides, talk about his experiences, and read poems and stories from the draft of his book on Brass Valley. For three years Mr. Roth has been following the old railroad tracks and photographing among ruins and in the last working brass mill in the Naugatuck Valley. Thanks to the existence of a unique extruder, one brass mill continues operation. It is the last descendent of American Brass with functioning mill buildings in Ansonia and Waterbury. Mr. Roth's photographs capture the men and equipment at work, the large casting furnaces, the extruder, pickling tanks, draw benches, annealers still functioning in a facility that has been making brass tube since before WW I.
PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: ...Even then we are not likely to notice the distant traces of terraces, towers and ceremonial structures along the ridge from the peak of Machu Picchu to the peak of Huayna Picchu (shown here) connected by a precipitous trail that defines an axis north-south through the city; people on the trail will be barely visible specks, but their path is aligned to the constellations and kept teathered to the seasons by the Intihuatana.

I've been making photographs since childhood. More recently, photography has become a way for me to explore the place I live and occasionally places I visit. This blog is a discipline and challenge to myself. However, I always welcome hearing how these posts touch those who visit.
