Have Camera, Will Trespass, on Brooklyns Waterfront
31 July, 2008
Nathan Kensinger generally does not ask for permission when he photographs the decaying remnants of Brooklyn’s industrial waterfront. Since 2003, he has wandered into shuttered factories, padlocked basements and forbidding warehouses. He often goes along with other photographers who have an adventurous bent. He hasn’t been arrested, yet, but he doesn’t want to tempt fate, either.
Mr. Kensinger’s photographs are now on view in a small exhibition, “Twilight on the Waterfront: Brooklyn’s Vanishing Industrial Heritage,” that opened on June 17 and runs through Aug. 30 at the central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library.
Check out a slide show of some stunning photos.
