Sunrise, sunset and all the garbage collected in between
3 C-Prints, 40’’ x 27’’ installed
These photographs were taken on the western shore of the Bronx on a tiny outcropping of land in the Hudson River. The first image was taken at sunrise around 5:23am and if you look closely you can see the shadow of Riverdale being cast on the vertical cliffs of the Palisades. After sunrise I spent much of the day cleaning this small, nameless parcel of land from which the photograph was taken. The overgrown landscape is unmarked but easily accessible and because it is out of public view it has acquired years of flotsam mixed with garbage left by negligent fishermen. At the end of the day I piled the bags of garbage and recyclables up for easy removal and then photographed the same northern view at sunset.
