CHRISTINE OSINSKI’S VINTAGE STATEN ISLAND

During the early 1980s, photographer Christine Osinski found herself kicked out of her lower Manhattan loft, in search of a new home.  “Finally somebody said you should look in Staten Island,” she recalled. It turned out to be a good suggestion, as Osinski and her husband would end up spending the next 16 years living in New York City’s least populated borough.

Inspired by her new environment, Osinski documented in black-and-white, shooting hundreds of images of children, adults, architecture, and other events throughout 1983 and ’84. Using both a 4×5 and twin lens reflex camera, she switched between the two according to the film she was able to afford.

Christine’s photos will be part of a group show at Sasha Wolf Gallery titled “The Drinking Show” opening July 11.
