View North From Chain Bridge, May 19, 2017.
The commission from Arlington County involved photographing the Potomac River shoreline of the county from its northwestern-most point to its southeastern-most point. The images were displayed in an Arlington County Transit bus, fitted into frames above the windows, similarly to the way advertisements are displayed.
The text displayed on the bus:
"Landscape photographer Anne Rowland made these pictures of Arlington’s Potomac River waterfront. The terrain varies: bucolic forest northwest of Key Bridge, a mysterious woodland just to the south, and urban parks such as Lady Bird Johnson Memorial Garden and Long Bridge Park. Further south along the Mount Vernon Trail, the shoreline ends at the broad mouth of Four Mile Run. These photos are comprised of multiple images assembled in the computer from both an iPhone as well as a remotely-triggered point-and-shoot camera attached to a 20 foot tall bamboo pole."
The photos cover much Arlington’s Potomac shoreline from Chain Bridge to Four Mile Run, and were taken during the period Feb-May 2017. They were made from a canoe, a kayak, a tour-boat, from the Washington, D.C. shoreline, and from Key Bridge and Chain Bridge. The image above is formatted in the 11 x 28" format in which all the photographs were installed on the bus, but while working on the commission, I photographed such that I could eventually make more standard rectangular format images, such as the selected ones that follow.
