Art Out: Marcia Grostein's "Brighton Beach Project--The World as it Should Be"
Images by Rebeca Galbinski
Marcia Grostein’s Brighton Beach Project stands as a testament to the possibility of harmonious coexistence between diverse populations. Comprised of intimate yet unabashed beachgoer portraits, the series reveals a rare intermingling of races, religions, relationships, and body types that characterizes the ocean-side community of Brighton Beach. Together, these photographs present an alternative to the divisiveness currently propagated by many socio-political groups and leaders.
Born in Sao Paulo and based in New York, Marcia Grostein’s illustrious career spans several decades. Her work has been in featured in international solo and group exhibitions, and can be found in numerous international private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA/PS1.
