As part of his Deep in A Dream–Central Park series, fine art photographer Michael Massaia shot these dreamlike images of the arches and tunnels scattered across the park. The toned gelatin silver contact prints in gold, selenium, and sepia gives the images a certain warmth and makes the tunnels rather inviting.

The arches and tunnels that are scattered across Central Park have acted as a shelter for me over the past 10 years while working on my Deep In A Dream–Central Park series. I would take apart my cameras, wait for the light to cooperate, and seek shelter from inclement weather in them. These arches and tunnels have become like homes, and have always given me the second wind to head back out into those late lonely nights and early mornings.
