Photographer Lauren Henkin began her study of Central Park five years ago on a visit from Oregon and has since moved to the city to work on the project full time. This show also marks her New York debut. “My goal is to represent Central Park as it lives in one’s imagination,” she has written. “It’s equally about the light on the softball field as it is about the softball. It’s about the deep grooves in the rocks as much as the rock-climbing. It’s about the sun on your back as much as the sunbathing.” Through June 8
