THESE ARE LITERALLY SOME OF THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHS I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME AND IF YOU DON’T LOOK AT THEM NOW I’M GONNA BE REALLY UPSET WITH YOU.
Photographer Christine Osinski on her photographs of New York’s forgotten borough, Staten Island:
“I generally look to photograph the supporting players and not the main characters,” she says. “I tend to look at the minor players and the overlooked places. A lot of my work is about the familiar so that it begins to take on a more unusual presence. It makes you question your assumptions about things you know. Right under your nose there might be something that you’re not familiar with. Maybe taking pictures is an opportunity to make someone look again.”
