DescriptionI love the feeling of movement, the little girl and the warm tone this image has. Coney Island is still near and dear to my heart. Growing up in Brooklyn, that was the place to go to have fun, all summer long. This Carousel is one of the only three original rides left in Coney that still are operational.
Joe Gemignani, Asheville NC Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Born and raised in New York City, photographer Joe Gemignani lived in Miami, FL for 30 years and now resides in Asheville, NC. Always in pursuit of visual stimulation, he’s traveled worldwide to photograph the people and places of diverse cultures. Whether using sophisticated professional camera equipment or a Polaroid SX-70 bought on eBay, the award-winning photographer captures the essence of beauty in the small details most people don’t notice.
Much of Gemignani’s Polaroid art and fine art photography contrasts the physical and ethereal beauty of tropical Beaches, rural and urban environments with images celebrating varied lifestyles and architecture. For this reason, Gemignani’s photographs have been selected for permanent display in corporate Art collections and public areas across the United States.
