Newtown Winter

Nathan Kensigner, featured here before for his documentation of infrequently frequented industrial corners of New York City, turns his lens on Newtown Creek in photos posted on his blog today.

I’ve been traveling a lot lately for work and watching a lot of forgotten movies of the 1990’s on African cable. I can’t remember where or what film or TV show, but sometime in the last couple of weeks I saw a clip of the Newtown creek digester eggs as part of a scifi plot that used the images to portray some sort of alien energy production or a spaceship or something. It reminded me of the tour of the creek I got this past November from photographer Anthony Hamboussi.

The Edgemere Landfill Trilogy

Thursday, November 11, 2010

You may remember photographer Nathan Kensinger from past mention on this blog of his coverage of Fresh Kills and the Hamilton Avenue marine transfer station.  Nathan’s latest project is a three-part series examining the section of the Rockaways (a beachfront neighborhood in Queens) that once housed the Edgemere, America’s longest-running landfill, and remains home to its toxic legacy.

Nathan Kensinger + Fresh Kills

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I first heard from trash photographer Nathan Kensinger this summer when we discovered a mutual love for abandoned marine transfer stations. Turns out our friends at Fresh Kills Park saw that post and invited Kensinger to photograph the infamous former landfill and capture its refound wild beauty.

Fancy that, this blog connecting trashies.
