Work from this project was recently acquired by the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University where it will be on view in an exhibition opening in September.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nothing Gold Can Stay is a body of work about the fleetingness of youth. Photographs of the boys of Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey describe this ephemerality, and through these photographs Nicholas Pollack intends to access a sense of memory and vulnerability to create an experience of love amid life’s chaos and uncertainty.
