Coney Island & Carnival Photography

A presentation of  fine art photography of Coney Island, fairs, carnivals, carousels and carnival art from around the world including the Coney Island Mermaid Parade.

Coney Island - Mermaids

Coney Island Mermaids

"Each year, at Coney Island, on the first Saturday after the summer solstice, hundreds of mermaids, mer-men, mer-babies, mer-animals and hundreds of thousands of spectators descend upon Coney Island. They come to Coney Island to celebrate the beginning of Summer and the official opening of the Atlantic Ocean. Part Mardi Gras, part art parade, part carnival, the Coney Island Mermaid Parade is a New York tradition." 

The Northstar Coney Island Galleries explore the nature and historical role played by Coney Island in a wondrous celebration of diversity and all that is different and strange. The Coney Island links page is a comprehensive survey of web sites on Coney Island, carnivals and the Coney Island Mermaid Parade.  This site is one of the major web sites on Coney Island, offering extensive information and research on Coney Island art, Coney Island poetry, Coney Island history, Coney Island photography as well as the historic role Coney Island has played in American culture. 

"The Soul of Coney Island" a one man show of fine art photography of Coney Island was presented by the artist at the Morrison Gallery at Penn State Capital Campus. The show ran from June 30th until September 14th 2003.

For those of you interested in why so many people are drawn to mermaids and their powerful symbolic and historical role,  you might want to check out "Mermaids - Symbols of Transformation" on this web site.

The American Jordan - Coney Island

"When you bathe in the waters of Coney Island, you bathe in the American Jordan. It is holy water for nowhere else in the United States will you see so many races mingle in a common purpose for a common good. Democracy meets at the shores of Coney Island and has its first interview, skin to skin. At Coney Island you find the real interpretation of the Declaration of Independence: the most good for the greatest numbers, tolerance, freedom and a celebration of the difference in us all"

From the PBS Video "Coney Island"
