Candid portraits of people riding the west-bound #7 train and still-life photography fragments taken at the Junction Blvd train Station in Jackson Heights, New York City. The central woman is any woman of immigrant descent thriving in this country. The disproportion of her large body compared to the train is a reference to Fernando Botero's sculpture and the virgin Mary in Michelangelo's La Pieta. Here, though, is a young woman self-empowered and self-possessed forging agency for herself in a new world. 1984 is my personal reference to my experience as an immigrant in the early 1980's and a direct reference to Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four."
