About the project

Jerome Strauss's photography exhibition “Westchester: View from Above,” installed at Grand Central Terminal's West Dining Concourse, presents a selection of drone photographs of locations in Westchester County, including Yonkers, Tarrytown, Eastchester, and Rye.

Strauss is interested in exploring his home of Westchester County in new ways. The photographs offer unique perspectives that will appeal to county residents, many of whom pass through Grand Central on their daily commute, as well as those less familiar with these locations. His images play with angles, textures, shapes, colors, and shadows to create abstract compositions.

The exhibit was generously sponsored by Griffin Editions and Kodak Professional.
