My Brooklyn - Douglas Ljungkvist

Though you might get a glimpse of some Brooklyn landmarks this is a personal project of what Brooklyn means to me. I tend to be drawn more and more to quiet and graphic scenes on the fringes of Brooklyn. This includes photographing around the few remaining New York Industrial Business Zones (IBZ’s) in Gowanus, Williamsburg, Red Hook, and Sunset Park. 

I especially enjoy visiting these areas on Sunday afternoons when all the industrial businesses are closed offering some of the quietest places you can find in New York City.

As a reader of 591 you have been able to enjoy some some of Douglas work like Middletown USA and beyond . He is a very interesting photographer who seems to have made up his mind about his direction and mission as an artist. Douglas Ljungkvist is based in Brooklyn, originally from Sweden.
