During the beginning of the pandemic, a photography project across the country was born called the Front Porch Project. In early April 2020, I launched my own Front Porch Project in Staten Island. In exchange for photographing families in front of their home from 8 feet away, I collected a donation to help those on the front lines. Each participating family received five edited digital images and donated at least $20. We were able to feed emergency room staff at both island hospitals, contributed to purchasing hospital supplies, and donated to Maker Space to help fund the making of face shields.

    The Alice Austen House

    A vibrant cultural center, the Alice Austen House keeps the bold spirit of the early American photographer alive by presenting changing exhibitions of Austen’s pioneering historic photographs as well as contemporary photography, while also providing education programs for students, and offering a range of cultural programs for the public. A Victorian Gothic Cottage that was Austen’s home serves as the museum — located in a nationally-landmarked park on the shore of Staten Island, near the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge with sweeping views of Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. The Alice Austen House and grounds are owned by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, operated by the Friends of Alice Austen House Inc. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and a member of the Historic House Trust. The Alice Austen House is a New York City and national landmark, on the Register of Historic Places, and a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s distinctive group of Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios. In 2017, we updated our designation to become a national site of LGBTQ history.
