Brooklyn Bridge

1980-2012

Thirty years ago, Ms. Mensch moved to a loft building on the Manhattan waterfront.

The ancient brick warehouse was situated within a few steps of the Brooklyn Bridge. In a statement about the project she wrote:

“Instinctively, I knew that I had found a unique place to live and work. Inspired and energized by my new surroundings, I photographed the majestic towers of the Bridge and the East River in all seasons and over many years. Most often I would set my camera on my roof, and from the same angle, create images month after month, year after year. Many times, I photographed at the edge of the swift flowing East River, learning about the tides which ebbed and flowed around this Great Bridge, as it was called when it was first built.
Today I realize the obsession I had with capturing these images was, in part, my way of summoning up the great minds behind the work, and seeking some universal truths in the process.”
