Shifting Perspectives: Photographs of Brooklyn’s Waterfront

May 19 at 8:00 am - September 10 at 5:00 pm BST

$10

This exhibition features the work of two dozen photographers whose images crisscross the Brooklyn shoreline, from Newtown Creek to Jamaica Bay. By picturing decades of Brooklyn’s coastal scenery, including its changing industrial and postindustrial environment, the exhibition presents dramatic panoramic vistas; spectacular aerial views; glimpses of popular recreational attractions, particularly in nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park and at Coney Island; and other scenes, including those impacted by natural or manmade forces, as well as by gentrification.

featured photographers include: Berenice Abbott; David Attie; Rudy Burckhardt; Bruce Davidson; Morris Engel; Mitch Epstein; Lucille Fornasieri Gold; Anders Goldfarb; Stanley Greenberg; Chester Higgins, Jr.; Michael Kenna; Nathan Kensinger; Shai Kremer; Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao; John Matturri; Robin Michals; Jeffrey Milstein; Garry Pierre-Pierre; Matthew Pillsbury; Paul Raphaelson; Lynn Saville; Julienne Schaer; Harvey Stein; Todd Webb; Jackie Weisberg.
