The Port Authority Bus Terminal and Chashama present a solo exhibition of photographic work by Donna Rocco, a long time Hell’s Kitchen resident, at the Port Authority Bus Terminal’s “Project Find” space on 9th Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.The exhibit titled Printemp features nine macro color flower photography images and will on view 24 hours a day from December 3, 2018 – January 30, 2019.
Donna Rocco’s works are inspired by the juxtaposition of the time of year against the vibrant macro flower images that provide a welcome reminder during the frigid winter months that spring is around the corner. The oversized evocative flowers serve to brighten the PABT corridor and welcome all visitors arriving day and night to Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Ms. Rocco has worked as a photographer for over 30 years. She has exhibited her fine art images in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Workshop on Martha’s Vineyard, The National Arts Club, Atlantic Gallery, The Museum of Music on Governor’s Island, SOHO Photo Gallery, and Suzhou, China.
From the moment she received her first camera at the age of nine, Ms. Rocco has been fascinated with photography. The strong connection she feels between what she sees in the world and the passing of time motivates her to record history in a more permanent media.
