For nearly fifty years Freshkills, in Staten Island, was the largest household waste dump in New York City. Freshkills is now in the process of being transformed into a huge, 2,200-acre wilderness park, three times the size of Central Park. Today, Freshkills is a magnificent and surreal landscape of rolling meadows and mussel-lined waterways. Students will gain access to not yet publicly open areas of the park with faculty member Jade Doskow, the Photographer-in-Residence of Freshkills. After a special tour and landscape photography tutorial out on-site, students will reconvene for a follow-up zoom critique of pictures made together.

Note: This class meets in person at Freshkills on Sunday and on Zoom on Thursday.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.

The class will be meeting near the site in Staten Island so you will need to have your own transportation. Please come prepared with water, sturdy walking shoes, a sunhat, bug spray, and your camera batteries charged and ready to go. Students will need to sign a waiver in order to participate. Confirm your mobile number and email address with Jade Doskow at [email protected] prior to class.
