Susannah Ray: A Further Shore: Exhibit
through April 8 at the Bronx Museum . Inspired by the boundless humanism in Walt Whitman’s
poem “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” Susannah Ray has developed a
new series of photographs on the waterways of New York City.
In his poem, Whitman calls out to the tides, the gulls, the
ferry passengers, the light, the clouds, the ships, the
sailors, the waves, the cities on the far shore. In his
eyes, all humans are divine, their reflected faces anointed
by “fine spokes of light” in the passing waters. Ray will present a selection of images
captured specifically in the Bronx.
