Staten Island Ferry
by Marcus Bjorn
The portrait is from the project ”The Staten Island Ferry” a portrait series focusing on New Yorkers riding The Staten Island Ferry. A ferry that has been transporting people between Staten Island and Manhattan since 1817. Riding 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, it transports 60,000 passengers a day and 22 million people a year, it is an intense and various concentration of different destinies from different cultures and backgrounds of all classes and of almost every imaginable occupation gathered in one place for 25 minutes.
