"In 'Brooklyn', Luke Swenson presents to us the monolithic structures that dominate the Brooklyn skyline - the council apartments. Using his medium format camera, and shot exclusively in black and white, Swenson expertly captures the enigmatic aura that envelopes this particular New York borough. Infamous for it high crime rates but simultaneously undergoing a cultural renaissance, Brooklyn has long been in the shadows of its neighbour Manhattan. This dark and beak portrayal of the city demonstrates all that is misunderstood and captivating about the city."
