Pack your cameras, tablets, and mobile devices for this Photo Walking Tour. Meet Photographer Gareth Smit at Alice Austen House. We will start with a brief tour of Gareth’s exhibit, the culmination of nearly two years’ work documenting the changes and community responses to private development and city rezoning in the area. Walk with Gareth from Alice Austen House to Staten Island Arts to view and discuss the Future Culture exhibit. Along the way, Gareth will discuss his approach to photography, and will encourage you to document both locations and the sites in between. No experience with photography necessary; we encourage anyone interested in photography at any skill level to join this photo walk.
 
Gareth Smit has created a body of work using Victory Boulevard as an artery to examine the diverse range of communities on the North Shore of Staten Island. He explores urban centers, cultural communities and personal stories about living on the North Shore during a time of dramatic urban and cultural shifts.
 
Gareth Smit is a Future Culture Photo Urbanism Fellow with Design Trust for Public Space and his work is presented in partnership with Alice Austen House and Staten Island Arts.
