Picture of the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry
Your Shot community member Donato DiCamillo sought to make a photo of a subject that was both “aesthetically and internally” pleasing. A ride on the Staten Island Ferry afforded him his shot: Ferry riders freely engaged in activities of their own choosing, while the Statue of Liberty seemed to train her protective gaze on the vessel. For DiCamillo, the scene called to mind the theme of self-determination. “My interpretation of the woman sleeping,” he says, “was that of an ‘American dreamer.’”
