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.

This is the first edition.
