It is hard to predict the weather in the hot summer days of New York City, a short vacation in Fire Island can either be sunny and warm or cloudy and humid, this game of nature changes everything when I take a simple shot trying to capture a moment, the nature of documentation is being challenged in the lenses of my camera. I traveled to Fire Island many times now, with different groups of people, sometimes it was men only, the other women only- and sometimes both. I was curious to experience the Island from different views, see different people and how each experiences the island differently. Although the groups were so different from one another, it was always this magical experience being on the island, I felt like people are truly alive. As if they continue the celebration of life that started somewhere in the early 1970's- celebration of cultures, emotions, and expression.
