Entry Description

In the early 1900s, Coney Island was denominated, "playground of the world". But the sights of modern-day Coney Island portray the results of unfortunate transformation and evoke empathy in those that reminisce the former playground. This vulnerability strangely gives me reassurance and the security of knowing that I am not alone a victim to helplessness. I had begun the Coney Island series with a primary focus on capturing the island's desolateness and emptiness.
