Lakeside, Prospect Park
Project info

The lakeside of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY has a kind of magic to it. It's in the heart of one of the busiest and most frenetic cities in the world, which gives a heightened quality to its beatific calm. I'm drawn to photographing people here because I catch them in a state of pause; we can share a moment on their own terms. These documents of contemplation, renewal, love, ritual, friendship, and community are all connected by this man-made oasis. Made largely during the early days of the Covid pandemic, these are photos of a city finding the space to collect its breath.

This is an ongoing project.
