Cony Island amusement park, Brooklyn, New York City by Franck Bohbot

Bohbot’s series, entitled “Last Stop — Coney Island” transforms the seedy New York amusement park into a placid landscape of washed out pastels and muted dreams. Through Bohbot’s lens, the park morphs into a hazy limbo trapped somewhere between a child’s idealised version of the adventure park and an adult’s far more jaded perspective. The eerie yet beautiful landscapes conjure the opposite feeling of actually being at the crowded, sweat-filled pier, and that’s exactly why they have us so entranced.
