The Dams operated, producing power for nearly a century at the Glines Canyon site, and for over a century at the Lower Elwha. My intention for this project is two-fold: First, to document the process. Second, to show artfully composed images of the components of the Dams and their powerhouses. My challenge and passion is not so much in the cold hard documentation of the process, but in capturing for the last time, the beauty of these aesthetic marvels of the Industrial Age. The Elwha powerhouses were filled with great machines of bold geometry, immense scale, and striking colors. These mechanistic marvels were my rich and dramatic subjects...Harry von Stark
