'The Chicago River' Cinemagraph

The DVD cinemagraph features historic glass plate images from the photobook by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams, The Lost Panoramas: When Chicago Changed Its River and the Land Beyond. Brought to life by Davis’ works, the moving images transport the viewer back in time during the turn of the 19th Century, when Chicago reversed the direction of its river.
