Their Game

Their Game focuses on the elderly female patrons of Columbus Park, NYC. They spend hours of their day consumed in a variety of public and social games. The men, who occupy their own spaces within the park, are accompanied by large clouds of cigarette smoke and even larger crowds of passing by tourists. 

In the corners of the park, and often seeking the cover of trees or carefully placed umbrellas, are pods of social woman. The patterns on their clothing and overlay of shadowed foliage lends to their individuality, while also identifying them as a larger social group. They do not play for the pride from drawing the largest crowd. They are simply enjoying the company of their friends, family, and neighbors, as they feverishly play their games.
