We Live In Brooklyn is an opportunity to help shape a new narrative taking shape in the borough. One of resistance, resilience and a sense of pride that involves a changing landscape and ever-changing demographic. I felt it necessary to tell a visual story of the Brooklyn I see in my everyday travels, through annual gatherings that bring out some of the most unique, stylish and beautiful people to exist and other events like DanceAfrica and Afropunk. I felt like there was an opportunity to share some of the beauty I saw in my borough.
Los Cinco Hermanos (LCH) is a book that chronicles a band of brothers that was formed in the summer of 2017. This Brooklyn collective came together after an invitation was extended to some of the brothers from The Bklyn Combine by Sam Gregory, a good friend and criminal defense attorney based in Brooklyn, NY.
Sam runs an organization called Brooklyn To Alaska that takes a group of 15 young men from Brooklyn, NY to McCarthy, Alaska every Summer for 14 days. These young men learn survival skills and basic life skills while being exposed to the last frontier. Whether pitching a tent every night and sleeping under the stars to rafting for a number of days these young men connect and learn from adversity and collaboration.
