Queens Chronicle

“Queens Surface,” a photographic documentary series by Michelle Cheikin, will be on exhibit at the Flushing Library at 41-17 Main St. from August 8 to 28. An opening reception with the artist will be Saturday, August 10, from 4-6 p.m.; at 4:30 Cheikin will answer questions and discuss the reasons she focused her lens on Queens.

“Queens Surface” is a montage of forty photographs that capture the subtle details in the quality of light and architectural forms of the Queens of yesterday and today. Michelle Cheikin depicts a reverence for a borough of New York City that is under-represented in the arts. With her attention to subdued color, vacant spaces, and reflections, Cheikin observes the Queens of yesterday, as it disappears in renovation and development. Over the past ten years, she has taken medium-format, color negative images that trace a layering of forms. Cheikin said she concentrated on “images from various neighborhoods that depict serene moments and initiate a feeling of a lost time.” 

"Queens Surface" Photography Exhibition is a free event.
