When I got off the F train at Coney Island on a sunny April day a few years ago, I wasn’t expecting to take many pictures, given the likelihood that no aspect of the amusement area near where I’d grown up had gone unphotographed. Instead, I encountered hundreds of Hasidic Jews on an outing to the beach, and I ended up taking more than a few photos.
Most distinctive about the Hasidim to the casual eye is their mode of dress. Although the women adopt subdued and modesty-preserving styles, the clothing worn by the men might seem more appropriate to a fanciful costume drama about 18th-century Poland, reflecting not only strong attachment to tradition, but also intentional separation from the general culture. As the photos in this show attest, this holds even for a stroll on the beach on a sunny April day. Also on view: Objects of Curiosity: Assemblages by Dan Levin
Open studio of authentic tin-type photographer Lindsey Ross plus a special guest exhibition Speciation: Sculpture and Installations by Ben Roth
Landscape paintings by Blair Harper
