Photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb collaborate on a book paying homage to the borough.
A new exhibition showcases the work of the French-born artist JR, including a giant mural with portraits of more than 1,000 New Yorkers, our sister publication Brooklyn paper reports.
The recently published book, titled “Deana Lawson: An Aperture Monograph,” includes work photographed in both Brooklyn and beyond.
A book of her photographs, first published in 2008, was reissued in September by Brooklyn-based publisher powerHouse Books.
Spanning the last decade, the book includes both established and less well-known photographers, capturing practically every corner of the borough.
A massive celebration of photography is coming to the base of the Brooklyn Bridge this month as Photoville returns for its sixth consecutive year.
Brooklyn's changed a lot since the 1960s, and sometimes the changes can be a bit tough to visualize for those who didn't live through them.
Winter's chill may have set in, but that doesn't mean there aren't opportunities to get out there and take some great photographs of Brooklyn's scenery.
We don’t know too many places in Brooklyn where a photographer can rent a darkroom, which is why we’re happy to hear the Gowanus Darkroom opened last week at 160 7th Street in, naturally, Gowanus. Photographers can pay hourly or monthly rates for the second-floor space, which has a group darkroom with 10 enlarger stations, film changing room and a film processing/print washing area.
Soon, it will also have digital printing and scanning, an 8-by-10 mural printing station, and photography classes. Membership costs $180 a month for 20 hours of printing, or $350 a month for access to all the facilities and a private locking flat file drawer. The darkroom is also available to rent short-term for $12 an hour. The facility will celebrate its grand opening this Friday from 6 to 8 pm. Click through to see the interior. GMAP
Photoville kicks off tomorrow evening in Brooklyn Bridge Park with 60 shipping container exhibits, photography workshops, artist talks and an exhibition showcasing 30 years of Brooklyn street photography curated by photographer Jamel Shabazz. United Photo Industries collaborated with Shabazz, a Red Hook and Flatbush native who’s been documenting the city’s street life for 30 years, to create a powerful collection of images depicting life in Brooklyn from the 1980s through today. (The photo above, by Nema Etebar, is part of the installation.)
The installation, “We Live in Brooklyn, Baby,” will open tomorrow at 7:30 during Photoville’s opening celebration. There will also be seven days worth of workshops and talks on topics ranging from how photographers can market themselves to photographing war zones. You can check out all the Photoville exhibits and events at the Pier 5 uplands at Brooklyn Bridge Park through September 28.
