Collin Hughes grew up in an isolated community by a lake in Minnesota, being on the water returns him to a calming sense of solitude rarely found in his home of New York City. He started documenting the ferry as a leisurely creative way to connect with all things languid and human that were not in his immediate circle of experience. Through the time spent on these boats, he's learned through observation and sought to kindly document the overlooked and uncanny through a deliberate and sensitive approach. The experience of being on a boat is a visceral one and for many, a rarity. Here you can see life closest to its source, a conversation born out of stillness.
Home For Now is a visual time-capsule of the necessary personal spaces we create when we’re quite literally out to sea. It documents two years of journeys back and forth across the famous waterway between Staten Island and Manhattan.
