The Highline
Project info

The far West Side of Manhattan is being transformed. The Highline spans this transformation, from the new Whitney Museum at its southern end to the massive Hudson Yards development at the north, with everything in between: the Chelsea art galleries, new apartments, offices, hotels food halls, stores, and restaurants, and what was there before - warehouses, industrial spaces, tenements and public housing. The Highline gives a unique elevated view of these spaces and creates its own unique place in this landscape. I have chosen to photograph the area with black and white film and a 6x17 horizontal format. This combination re-creates what it is like to actually be on or around the Highline, emphasizing the geometry and shapes of the neighborhood, while allowing the complexity of this changing landscape to be captured and observed in great detail.
