About: Rockaway Beach --
I love the beach, and I had a connection to “Rockaway Beach" in Queens.
One day I tried a roll of Infrared film and after developing and printing, I knew I had to go back and keep shooting,
which I did for more than 10 years. I loved how the infrared enhanced the feeling of the heat and the quality of light,
making it all a bit surreal and timeless. There’s a real mix of people, young and old, a mix of ethnicities,
all out there together enjoying the summer offerings.
