"Views of the Hudson", written during a visit to New York in 2008, explores ideas of belonging and displacement. In a flood of images from this overcrowded information-rich city it weaves a narrative that suggests both the intoxication and dangers of believing in Promised Lands. "Views of the Hudson" shows the life of a city that is complicated and enriched for being at once both sacred and profane.
