Help Save Ellis Island!

Blue, Ellis Island, NY, 1984 by Richard M. Coda

I am very proud to offer a special edition print, Blue, Ellis Island, NY, 1984 in an effort to help raise funds to continue the wonderful work at Save Ellis Island. As you may have heard, they have run out of funds and need to raise $500,000 by the end of April, 2010, or... the project will be no more. I had to privilege of working with the National Park Service and Montclair State College during the summer of 1984 in the Ellis Island Photo Documentation/Interpretation Project II. During this project we assisted the NPS in documenting the island before renovations had begun. In return we were free to artistically interpret what we saw. This image is part of my experience at Ellis Island. Working primarily in black and white with a 4x5” camera, this is the only color image I made during the project.

This image is available in two versions: as a 4x5” image on 8x10” paper and as an 8x10 image on 11x14” paper. Prints are on Fuji Crystal Archive, the most stable true photographic color paper available today. The 4x5” version is priced at $50 and the 8x10” version is priced at $100. Shipping is $12.50. To purchase, please visit For more information, please call or email.

Half of all sales of this image will be donated to the Save Ellis Island fundraising effort.
