In October 2005, the Design Trust awarded the third Photo Urbanism fellowship to Travis Roozée for his exploration of Jamaica Bay, Queens. Over the course of one year, Mr. Roozée has photographed the bay's dramatic landscape and the historic communities established there to harvest the bay's natural resources. His focus on the people of this place, on traces of the area's past, and the cyclical drama of the seasons has resulted in an elegiac portrait of a little-known and distinctive New York City community.
The resulting photographic essay will be on view at the Museum of the City of New York from February 10 to April 23, 2007. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Wednesday, February 14, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Read the press release for the exhibition.

This exhibition is co-sponsored by the Museum of the City of New York, with additional support provided by Kodak, Paul and Ulla Warchol, and Paul Warchol Photography. All exhibit photographs were shot with Kodak Professional Portra 400NC film and printed on Kodak Professional Supra Endura N paper.
