Portraits of Coney Island
Project info

Coney Island is the end of the line for several subway trains and it’s where people end up when they run out of city. It’s a place of pleasure, openness, and release from the city’s confines. It’s a diverse mix of people from different cultures and socio-economics all trying to get a little sun and sand. A microcosm of the city at large but with swim trunks, flip-flops, and hot dogs. With this portrait series I try to capture the spirit of a few individuals from among the crowd.
