Gayle Tanaka – Statement

( bio / statement / work )

In her most recent work, Gayle Tanaka looks at the isles of New York–Coney Island, Staten Island, the Brooklyn end of Long Island and Manhattan–through a series of digital photographic prints. In particular, the towers, wheels, walks and sands of Coney Island are presented as wonders and ruins, at once vivid and eviscerated, living and dying by the Atlantic Ocean. The work is homage to the city she now calls home.
