Photographer Gareth Smit has created a body of work using Victory Boulevard as an artery to examine the diverse range of communities on the North Shore of Staten Island. He explores urban centers, cultural communities, and personal stories about living on the North Shore during a time of dramatic urban and cultural shifts.
The exhibition is the culmination of nearly two years’ work documenting the changes and community responses to private development and city rezoning in the area.
His work has been completed as a Future Culture Photo Urbanism Fellow with Design Trust for Public Space and is presented in partnership with Alice Austen House and Staten Island Arts.
This exhibition is part of Future Culture: Connecting Staten Island’s Waterfront on view at the Alice Austen House from September 14 to December 10.
