About Geraldine Pontius
Geraldine Pontius is a photographer, artist, and architect. Art and Architecture are the subjects she captures in her images in her decades long practice. As an early pioneer in the downtown Manhattan art scene, she was both a participant and an observer. Her photographs documented the scene. Recognized for her work with other artists, Pontius transformed Suzanne Harris’s Locus One: Up concept into a major site-specific sculpture, overcoming obstacles to building in NYC Battery Park City Landfill. Creative Time selected the Pontius/Hatch/McCusker collaboration, Economy of Means, its first artist team collaboration, Art on the Beach. She frequently has exhibited in artist-organized galleries and museum juried shows.
Pontius’s photographs use both abstraction and metaphor to convey meaning beyond the purely documentary, interpreting local scenes and architecture. Her images have appeared as illustrations for poetry in online journals and as cover art for printed publications.
