The photographs in Nicholas Pollack’s new book Meadow were made between 2015-2020 in and around Secaucus, New Jersey, U.S. Inspired by the landscape of the New Jersey Meadowlands, Meadow is a body of work about a small plot of land and the friendships and interactions between a group of truck drivers who forge a transcendent relationship with the place.
Nicholas Pollack’s Meadow is tied to place – specifically, a place that is neglected by society. Meadow tells the story of a group of truck drivers who made a piece of overlooked salt marsh their own. Operating in the tradition of documentary style photography, Pollack shows both the social and the physical landscapes of America in Meadow. This book is Nicholas Pollack’s ode to a small portion of the sprawling New Jersey Meadowlands, to its people and its landscape, and to the humanity enveloped in a post-industrial landscape.
