Tracy Collins: ATLANTIC YARDS: DECONSTRUCTED

20120928

September 28 through October 11, 2012

Photographer Tracy Collins has been chronicling the rapidly changing urban landscape since the Atlantic Yards project was announced in 2003. His exhibit Atlantic Yards Deconstructed traces the “on the ground” impacts of the development over the past 9 years through photography, video and other media.

Although he has been making photographs for over 30 years, it was only in the past 10 years that Tracy has been calling himself a photographer. Up until then, he considered photography a serious hobby while working his “day job” as an electrical engineer in California’s Silicon Valley. Photography is now Tracy’s full-time passion.

Most of Tracy’s recent work has focussed on architecture, urban landscapes and street photography generally, and more specifically on the Atlantic Yards project in his neighborhood of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. For the past 8 years Tracy has been chronicling the changes to the area within and around the footprint of the project.
