William King’s “A Man and His Barge”

“I was drawn to Red Hook with its edgy, worn landscapes, its ubiquitous rust, and the extraordinary quality of its light. Some years ago, while taking pictures there, I came upon an old barge moored in a small inlet in the harbor.” 

and so begin’s William King’s story of a Brooklyn man and his barge.

This photographic project highlights Captain David Sharps and the Waterfront Museum of Red Hook, Brooklyn. The documentary imagery focuses on Captain Sharps and his various maritime activities, operations and maintenance needed to maintain the historic vessel.

This show is on view during the museum’s regular open hours Thursdays and Saturdays, May 4 – July 27
