Here are some shots from the recent John Paul Gaultier Exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. A brilliant collection of the designers work spanning across his career shows how he, as a designer, has left his fingerprint in the world of fashion, music, television & photography.
Acclaimed photographer, artist and general renaissance man, Nathan Kensinger, has a affinity for the lost and forgotten places in our fair city. Read here from his last few photo essays about Coney Islands dark corners.
“Presented almost as panels in a comic book, these are portraits of a different Coney Island era, long past. Strip poker, naked hunting, shotgun weddings, Sasquatch, moonshine, skeeball, mermaids and cartoonish gun violence. This is Coney Island’s lost soul, a forgotten and crumbling old arcade full of cat piss, ruinous decay and dark carnival whimsy.”
