New York Waterways

Susannah Ray (Author)

Book 5 from the  Hoxton Mini Press series 'Tales from the City'.

Comes with an 8-page booklet featuring Walt Whitman's poem 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry'.

'Tales from the City' is a series dedicated to the best urban photography from around the world. The books are similar to the East London series but 20% bigger with cloth wrapped around the back. Even better!

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.

Susannah Ray lives in the Rockaways, a small peninsula on the edge of New York City bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Jamaica Bay, and JFK International Airport. This intersection of city and water is at the heart of her work. Susannah studied photography at Princeton University and the School of Visual Arts MFA Program in Photography and Related Media, and is an Associate Professor of Photography at Hofstra University.
