Taken in the “forgotten borough” of Staten Island between 1983 and 1984, the photographs in Christine Osinski’s 'Summer Days Staten Island' create a portrait of working class culture in an often overlooked section of New York City. Captured on Osinski’s large format 4 x 5 camera as she wandered the island, her candid portraits of strangers, vernacular architecture, and quotidian scenes reveal an invisible landscape within reach
of the thriving metropolis of Manhattan. The neighborhoods that Osinski captured are devoid of the skyscrapers, swarms
of pedestrians, and choking masses of traffic that are a short ferry ride away. Instead, she photographed kids riding bikes
on open, empty streets, suburban homes with neatly tended yards, and the small-town feel of New York’s least populous borough.

Accompanying the series of images is an essay by Paul Moakley, Time magazine’s deputy director of photography and visual enterprise.
