"The Ghost Tree of Inwood Park can be found down an unmarked footpath in Inwood Park in Manhattan. Many of New York City's largest parks have secrets and surprises and Inwood has no shortage of legends old and new.

Even on a bright spring day the tree has a startling presence and I love imagining what stories would have emerged at such a formation if it had occurred 200 years ago. The photograph is from my landscape series Nowhere In Manhattan that documents the borough's remaining landscapes and non-spaces where the city is absent."Read Less
