Stephen Mallon, "Next Stop: Atlantic"


As if the choice views of the skyline weren’t enough, there’s now even more to distract the eye on the East River Ferry.

Throughout the summer, H2O-related photographs will be on display aboard three of the ERF’s commuter vessels. The first edition, which debuted this week and is on view through June 28, features three very different artists’ take on the theme. “Underwater Creatures” is a series of shots of aquatic animals in their natural environs by David Doubilet, whose work has been a fixture in the pages of National Geographic for more than 40 years; Stephen Mallon’s “Next Stop: Atlantic” documents the MTA’s tossing of unused subway cars into the ocean to begin new lives as artificial reefs; and Joni Sternbach’s "SurfLand" comprises portraits of contemporary surfers captured using the 19th-century tintype process.

Starting July 6, look for works by Andreas Franke, Corey Arnold and Eric Prinvault.

Ferries with photo exhibitions operate Mon–Fri 6:40am–8:45pm. Visit eastriverferry.com for more info.
