Freshkills Park Photography at “Staten Island Unlimited” Talk
The upcoming Staten Island Unlimited Triennial Talk at the Alice Austen House will include a discussion and Q&A with Michael McWeeney, whose photograph of Freshkills Park is included in the photography exhibition.
McWeeney has been photographing Freshkills Park as part of Capturing Change, a series of photo essays in collaboration with Urban Omnibus that invites small groups of photographers to the site to document the engineered landscape’s evolution.
The Staten Island Unlimited Triennial of Photography features the work of thirty-five photographers from three boroughs, uncovering the state of contemporary photography on Staten Island. At the Triennial Talk on Sunday April 10th, McWeeney will join fellow artists Gale Wisdom, Ed Coppola, and Robin Michals to discuss how their work is inspired by and relates to Staten Island’s built and natural environment.
