“Brooklyn Photographs” Art Exhibition Promo
Get a taste for the last “Brooklyn Photographs” exhibition which brought together the work of 11 photographers who have turned their lens on the Brooklyn experience from the late 1960s to the present.
Each of these photographers presented a body of work on a specific theme – childhood in Williamsburg in the 1960s, Halloween in the 1970s, or Bushwick street life in the 1980s, to name a few.
More recent work from the last decade explored such subjects as the rapidly gentrifying post-industrial landscape, Brooklyn artists, and the microcosm of street life visible near BRIC’s facility at the intersection of Fulton and Flatbush.
The Brooklyn Photographs exhibition illuminated the photography role in Brooklyn preservation.
