The Concord River photographs came about through an investigation of landscapes in Concord, specifically, land around the North Bridge and around fields protected by conservation measures. Photographs were taken between the fall of 2008 and late spring of 2009. The artists visited each site repeatedly — often weekly — capturing the riverways from the same location, enabling a beautiful documentation of atmospheric mood and seasonal changes.

“History, time, change and repetition were key elements to this project. These lands are the location of an important period in American history — the ground upon which the Revolutionary War began. Our documentary approach allows for an observation of time upon the land and records our experience of a specific space. We hope to leave the viewer with a new sense of place and deeper understanding of the river and its environs.”          — Sally Gregg and  Michael McKeen
