A Farther Shore, a collection of photographs by Susannah Ray, adjunct associate professor of Fine Arts, Design, Art History, was featured recently in The New York Times. On her website, Professor Ray writes, “Inspired by the unfettered humanism of Whitman and by the shifting light and reflective waters of American Luminism, I am gathering images of life upon and alongside New York City’s waterways. After the ravages of Hurricane Sandy, I find it necessary to re-embrace the water as timeless balm, revelation, and rejuvenation.”
In 2012 The New York Times featured photos from Professor Ray’s series Right Coast, which which lovingly captures Rockaway Beach and its surfing community years prior to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.
