Capturing Change is a series of photography tours at Freshkills Park on Staten Island’s West Shore. What was once the world’s largest landfill is transforming over the next 25 years into a 2,200-acre park and cultural destination. This is a special opportunity to see and document the unique engineered landscape while the site is closed to the public.

By inviting small groups of photographers to document the engineered landscape’s evolution — from landfill to park and across all the seasons in between — the series serves to generate a community- and artist-driven archive of our shared landscape and the restoration of natural systems in an ever shifting urban context.

Transportation between the Park and the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George can be provided. Capturing Change tours are free but pre-registration is required.

About the organizer

Organized by
Freshkills Park

At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. Free tours offer insights into ongoing development and unmatched views, and recreational programs provide opportunities to experience the hills and waterways before the park officially opens.
