Frank Gohlke

Reservoir #3 on the Sudbury River--Framingham, Mass., January, 1990
chromogenic print
46 3/4 x 59 in.
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the artist and museum purchase made possible by Kent and Marcia Minichiello

This print is from the Sudbury River Series, which tells the story of a Massachusetts town’s devotion to its river. Sudbury Valley Land Trust chose to commemorate its fortieth anniversary with an exhibition of Gohlke’s photographs that glorifies the reality of the river, rather than romanticizing it.
