Among creative people who talk about emphasizing the “working” nature of Seattle’s waterfront in envisioning its future, very few actually know the companies and people involved in industrial fishing and boating. Persistent Work, Images of History and Industry on Salmon Bay and Lake Union is a visual essay on that world, seen through the eyes of Abby Inpanbutr. Her large-format black-and-white pictures—of a workshop, or an office festooned with thrift-store paintings of ships, or a foggy fueling station in Ballard—make Seattle look impossibly, vanishingly practical and beautiful.
