The Statue of Liberty: Through the Eyes of a NYC Resident

I’m in the process of going through a lot of my past work towards the goal of creating a larger photo series on tourists and exploring the concept of how people react to a given environment.  The plan is to tackle several iconic tourist destinations and look at these locations with the eyes of a documentary photographer.  One of the places I visited (as a tourist myself) not too long ago was the Statue of Liberty.  I have lived in New York City going on 16 years, but until two years ago had never been to the Statue of Liberty.  Indeed my only view of Liberty Island had been sailing past on the Staten Island Ferry.  Here are the photos from my trip.  It’s amazing what you fixate on when NYC is your home base and the statue itself is present everywhere.
