Photographers at Fresh Kills

On Saturday, we woke up REALLY early to take a group of professional photographers out on a tour of the Freshkills Park site and catch some prime morning light.  What we got was morning fog, at least for half the morning, but our pros still shot some interesting stuff.  We hope to share some of those images in the future and to do more photo tours of the site–we’re thinking late summer or early fall for the next one.  If you’re a photographer who would be interested in participating, let us know.

Meantime, some of the most dramatic and beautiful existing photos of the site have been taken by Michael Falco, who had exclusive photographic access to Fresh Kills Landfill operations both before and after 9/11.
