Christine Osinski’s Photos of 1980s Staten Island

In the upcoming book “Summer Days: Staten Island,” photographer Christine Onsinski captures the spirit of residents of New York City’s “forgotten borough.” Taken during the summer seasons of the 1980s, the monochromatic images offer a glimpse into the culture of Staten Island, which sits just a ferry ride away from the bustling streets of Manhattan. AnOther recently spoke with Onsinski ahead of the book’s release to discuss how digital media has helped expose her nearly 40-year-old works.
