Christine Osinski’s Photographs Of Staten Island’s Overlooked New Yorkers In 1980s

When Christine Osinski moved to Staten Island in the 1980s (the Manhattan loft was bought up by developers) she found the long-overlooked borough with a tough and rugged edge gave her a sense of liberation and escape from Manhattan. Her photographs give an insight into New York’s overlooked borough, the blue-collar heel to Manhattan’s white boot.

“The people I photographed were all strangers to me. I mostly met them once and then never saw them again. There were a few children, though, that I photographed a few times. As I walked across Staten Island carrying my 4×5 camera, people seemed curious about the large camera. People seemed willing to be a part of the picture-taking process, to be recognised and recorded,” she says.
