A Roosevlt Island Photo Essay
by Tad Sudol
For a Roosevelt Island photo essay, Tad Sudol reacted to a community on Pause by hauling out his camera and artist’s eye, recording favorite views.
There’s a tradition of photographers freezing history through the lens. It gained momentum during the Great Depression, capturing unforgettable images of a world in crisis.
Today, the coronavirus crisis threatens to equal that disaster, but Sudol brings a hauntingly beautiful look at the local scene on Roosevelt Island.
