ARTIST STATEMENT

The Chateau is a complex of twelve cooperative apartment buildings in the landmarked section of Jackson Heights, six buildings each on 81st and 80th Streets.  The complex was constructed in 1924 with a common garden.  I have resided there since 1992 and as a landscape photographer I have an enduring fascination with the garden and especially its trees.  There are views I like to photograph in all seasons, but 2017’s late fall provided a particularly impressive set of possibilities.  

ABOUT THE ARTIST
In addition to landscape photography (which includes some urban landscapes), some event photography and some commercial work (mainly photographing pre-K through elderly for a social services organization), Joel Weber is the photographer for Theatre167, which had its start in Jackson Heights.
