  • Selections from The Stilled Passage: A Photographic Journey Through Ellis Island's Unrestored Buildings

    South Gallery

    This exhibition of 40 color photographs by photographer Philip Calabria conveys the beauty, mystery and evocative scenes that reside within the unrestored buildings of Ellis Island. These buildings were once home to the island's hospital, contagious disease and isolation wards, nurses' quarters, doctors' residences, and laundry facilities and other support functions.

    Using both artificial and natural light, the photographs capture the varying surfaces inside the buildings that mark time, weather and the presence of the many lives that passed through them.

    Philip Calabria is Chair of the Visual Arts Program at Northfield Mount Hermon School.
