For the past seven years, photographer Estefany Molina has attended Greenport Village’s annual Dances in the Park, camera in hand to snap photos that bear witness to the spectators’ lives. She’s now sharing these moments in “Monday Night Dances,” a new art show at First and South restaurant.
Molina, who is based in Greenport, began photographing the weekly Mitchell Park events in 2009, gravitating first to the music and then to the people. She had always been interested in live music and the dances presented an opportunity to practice her craft.(more…)
