Who By Water draws on archival footage in which ship passengers are depicted staring wordlessly into the camera's lens, through a veil of deteriorating emulsion. We examine these anonymous faces: rich, poor, young, old, celebrated or incidental. All of their numbers have by now been called. And in staring back at them, we contemplate our own fate.
