Brass Valley: Made in America
photographs by Emery Roth
March 3rd to April 25th
Gallery "Walk & Talk" - Sunday, April 1st, 3 PM

"When I began following the old tracks through the Naugatuck Valley, I wanted to photograph what was left of its industrial past. I was looking for rust and a glimpse of another age. I never expected to find myself in a time warp, photographing where giant hydraulics are still hissing, steel clanking, hot, glowing metal flying through the air, where the steam still rises from old pickling vats, and men charge furnaces in buildings where the soot has had more than a hundred years to cake. I never dreamed such a place still existed. This is a show about that place."

 Emery Roth has documented Brass mills highlighting the industry that formed this unique Valley. Most of the photos, for this show, were taken in Ansonia & Waterbury.
