Lens:  Foxy 
Film:  Robusta 
Flash: off

"Come, take a walk with me. I am going to take you on a tour of some of the wondrous neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York to see some remarkable street art and graffiti, as well as meet some of the artists and musicians who live and work in these vibrant and energy-filled streets. Some of the images capture street art/graffiti that is known world over! However, only locals know that it is in the Morgantown section of East Williamsburg (some may argue its really Bushwick) that one can find some of the best examples.

I chose the Robusta film and Foxy lens combination specifically for this project because Robusta delivers warm, rich colors that perfectly suit the vibrancy of the graffiti and street art, as well as the tones and textures of native to Brooklyn. The Foxy lens worked perfectly with Robusta film to add a little bit of atmosphere to the brightness of the colors.

A bit of history: Brooklyn, specifically the Williamsburg area, is generally considered the center for emerging and established graffiti artists to display their work. One can walk down streets in the eastern area of Williamsburg, especially around Metropolitan Street, to see some of the finest examples of graffiti world over. Painted by individual artists or collectives working together, I hope you enjoy this tour of some of the finest "street art" in the world."
