Commissioned by the CCA, for three years, French photographer Serge Hambourg recorded over four hundred historic mills and factories throughout New England. By capturing their surroundings as well as by focusing on the stark beauty of their interiors and exteriors, the images trace the evolution of this building type.
The photographs included in the exhibition range from small village gristmills, almost domestic in scale, to the massive brick factories and workers’ housing in communities such as Saco, Maine, and Providence, Rhode Island. The exhibition consists of forty-three of Hambourg’s photographs as well as an album from the CCA collection.
The exhibition was also presented at the Hood Museum of Art in Hanover, New Hampshire.
Curated by Timothy Rub, Hood Museum of Art, with David Harris, CCA.
