PORTALS: DUMBO 2011

The inspiration for this body of work stems from years of looking at my surroundings, imagining how things might appear if I could shrink down to an inch tall and go exploring. For the series, I scoured the DUMBO neighborhood and photographed different PORTALS—defined as a doorway, gate, or other entrance—to create 16 macro or near-macro vignettes of drains, cracks, holes or miniature environments I envision as entrances into another world.

On your quest, most of the PORTALS are small, not visible at eye-level and may take a little bit of searching to find as they tend to be captured from an unconventional point of view. Happy hunting!
