Home For Now is photography and writing project that explores the theme of waiting that takes place in the famous New York City Harbor. In this place everyone is coming and going from a point A to point B, and yet here they are caught in this liminal window of time on the ferry.

As an observer of people I notice how they relate with their surroundings while they wait. In this time of sitting idle, everything becomes timeless. They close their eyes, take in the ocean breeze, listen to the sound of the hull meeting the water; a reality that is void of expectation and structure. This fluid journey reveals secret inner worlds where everyone is soaked in the space, connected together to a deeper time.

When time stands still it creates respite, but when time races, anxiety prevails. Time is funny in this way - our perception of it changes repeatedly based on context.  

This space provides enough of a window of ambivalance; an impatient nervousness for what’s ahead and a sense of peace from the world outside. Both ends are held in this journey across NY Harbor. It goes back and forth, 24 hours a day, holding a quiet space for all those who will experience a complete journey of waiting.
