Susannah Ray: New York Waterways

New York City is defined by water, yet many of its shorelines are largely unknown. These lyrical photographs, inspired by a Walt Whitman poem, take us on a seasonal journey past sheltered bays, under great bridges and over deep rivers to give us a moving perspective on a megacity we thought we knew so well.

Join photographer Susannah Ray for a discussion of her new book, NEW YORK WATERWAYS, and a reading of Walt Whitman’s “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” by poets Amber Atiya, Dena Igusti, and Kelly Sullivan. Presented by Underwater New York in connection with the 2018 Works on Water / Underwater New York artist residency on Governors Island.
