The Photography of Jeffrey Mason
On view through January 11, 2015 • Sundays, 1 – 4PM
and during events in the Sanctuary.
The Unitarian Church of Staten Island is hosting the work of Staten Island photographer Jeffrey Mason through January 11, 2015. This collection, with the exception of the images from New Orleans, touches mostly on familiar scenes, in and around New York City. Mr. Mason says this about his work: "I find myself drawn to shooting "street" portraits, musicians, dancers and the grittiness of abandoned places and people. It's not what I see, it's how I see it. That's how I approach taking and processing my images." Mr. Mason studied at the Arts Student League. His photographic vision is in part shaped by a life long interest in drawing and painting and by his professional career as a window dresser. The Gateway Photographers of Staten Island named him Photographer of the Year in 2011 and he has exhibited with the Staten Island Acoustic Music Society and the Staten Island Creative Community.

On the other side will be a picture of the store or a map of the person’s home town.
