Looking through the lens of Staten Island residents and outsiders documenting the borough, this year’s theme examines ecologies, the study of the relationships between living things and their changing environments, in Staten Island. Exploring this idea in work through traditional, digital, and innovative uses of the medium; this juried exhibition examines contemporary themes and narratives that begin to reveal our evolving responses to the rapidly changing social and natural environment in this complex borough.

An expert panel of judges including Megan Beck, curator at the Noble Maritime Museum; Justine Kurland, artist and photography professor; and Jessica Dimson, Deputy Photo Editor, The New York Times Magazine, reviewed and selected entries for inclusion in the exhibition curated by Paul Moakley, Curator and Caretaker, and Victoria Munro, Executive Director.
