Cleveland’s industrial might in the 1920s is captured here in gauzy, impressionist strokes. Fitz transforms the grime and smoke of the canal at work into a subtle tapestry of reflections and shadows. He would eventually abandon this type of pictorial photography for the more precise sensibility required for advertising photography, ultimately becoming a national leader in that field.
