The Bronx River is my Mississippi. Though narrow and shallow and short, it is nonetheless a river and even in miniature possesses all the mystery and motion of its more powerful brethren. I can stand for long moments of reverie-taken in by the dappled, fractured complexity of light and shadow, surface and reflection, movement and stillness happening all at once. A river is a harmony of opposites.
Joel Meyerowitz excerpted in a Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks, published by Aperture.

Photographs by Joel Meyerowitz

Published by Aperture.
Introduction by Michael Bloomberg. Text by Phillip Lopate.

Hidden pockets of wilderness still exist within the urban environs of New York City, and in Legacy Joel Meyerowitz invites us to discover them. This beautiful body of work is the result of a unique commission Meyerowitz received from the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to document the city's parks. During the course of this project, Meyerowitz honed in on the 8,700 acres within the five boroughs of New York City that still exist in their original pristine state, as well as areas within parks that have been left to revert to wilderness. In creating this work, Meyerowitz has drawn on his own childhood memories of a New York that included "green space--open and wild, alive with rabbits, migratory birds, snakes, frogs and the occasional skunk--[that] gave me my first sense of the natural world, its temperament and its seasons, its unpredictability and its mystery." Through this rich compendium of images of parks, shorelines and forests, Meyerowitz's magnificent project transports the viewer into the heart of a lush wilderness, while contextualizing these nooks of nature as an inextricable part of city life today.
