Portrait of Jamaica Bay: Photographs by Travis Roozée
Portrait of Jamaica Bay features photographs taken over the course of a single year in the area surrounding Jamaica Bay, Queens. In 2006, photographer Travis Roozée documented the bay's dramatic landscape and the historic communities that arose to harvest its natural resources. Focusing on the local residents, traces of the area's past, and the seasons' cyclical beauty, Mr. Roozée has produced a photographic portrait of a little-known yet distinctive New York City community.
The exhibition is part of Photo Urbanism, an ongoing program of the Design Trust for Public Space to encourage the examination and re-imagining of New York City's public spaces through photography. Portrait of Jamaica Bay: Photographs by Travis Roozée is co-sponsored by the Design Trust for Public Space with additional support provided by Kodak, Paul and Ulla Warchol, and Paul Warchol Photography.
