Steel Cities is an ongoing project exploring the work places people once worked and the towns of the industrial East and Midwest by artist and educator, Deborah Kingery. The gelatin silver prints attempt to address the questions of loss, recovery from loss, and the collective transformation of both the industrial base and its inhabitants. How do we inform what we lose and transform? How do the ways in which Americans reclaim what is lost, speak to the collective consciousness of Americans? Exhibited are five Steel cities, Trenton, Michigan; Bethlehem and Homestead, Pennsylvania; Cleveland, Ohio and Gary, Indiana.
