Coney Island
“Coney Island” began as a portrait of a piece of architecture; but during the month of shooting, the piece became less about a building, and more about the humans inhabiting its space. One of the largest demographic frequenting The Coney Island boardwalk at 7am, is people over the age of 65. They are taking in the sun, getting in their daily exercise. What’s inspiring about them is the pleasure they seem to take in their bodies. I’m uncomfortable with my own “imperfections”, but I look at them and I ‘m not at all critical. They are as they should be. I envy them, the pleasure they seem to take in what they are.
