Salimah Ali has always possessed the spirit of creativity. She began her career as a photographer in 1970’s New York. Her work has taken her all over the world but New York remains the center of her photographic practice. Ali’s images are a celebration of life, of joy, of the moments that pass us by in the commotion of everyday life.

The works included in Notations in Passing are an extension of Ali’s 50 years of lived experiences in Jamaica, Queens. These images are of friends who have had an impact on the greater New York community.
