'Roosevelt Station' (2019–2020) is a series of candid photographs of people illuminated by the cathedral-like light of the Roosevelt Avenue/74th St. train station in Jackson Heights, Queens in New York City. The photographs show commuters, airport-bound travellers, and panhandlers, as they pass through the station during the morning rush hour, suspended in the glowing magenta, orange, and green-tinted light beaming from ‘Night Passage’, a public art installation of colourful transom windows by the artist Tom Patti. The subjects in the photographs, mostly engaged in mundane daily routines, are made theatrical by the otherworldly light that falls during the morning hours.
