“No other liminal zone has as grisly a provenance as Dead Horse Bay, but most of them carry a sense of death, decay, and desertion. Near Gerritsen Beach is Marine Park, which contains a beautiful salt marsh featuring a sculpture park of abandoned vehicles. Some have almost completely dissolved into the creek; others have arrived more recently.”
The work on the Slate essay is part of an ongoing project documenting the landscape around the edges cities for over ten years. I have also taken artists and writers on walking tours of these areas.
