WINCHESTER, MASS.- Lee Cott’s photographs of the Seattle Gas Works are crafted with a sense of delicacy to portray extraordinary beauty in familiar, ordinary and conventional structures.

Industrial Gothic The Seattle Gas Works will run at the Griffin Gallery from December 10 through January 3, 2020.

“I have always been drawn to the monumentality of structures such as these; initially to the magnificent grain elevators that rise above the plains of the midwest and now more recently to these stunning industrial forms in Seattle. The Seattle Gas Works are structural marvels that have an enduring visual interest for me on two scales, for their sheer enormity and for their careful attention to minute detail. These structures are the sole survivors of this era of gas works in the United States. As well, they are a unique landmark for the City of Seattle. They are well-known in the preservation community as outstanding examples of industrial archeology, adaptive reuse and urban landscape design.”
