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 Brooklynâ€™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 hasnâ€™t been arrested, yet, but he doesnâ€™t want to tempt fate, either.
Mr. Kensingerâ€™s photographs are now on view in a small exhibition, “Twilight on the Waterfront: Brooklynâ€™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.
