Before Brooklyn rose to overseas reputation there existed a colourful borough of neighborhoods wealthy with connections and traditions. through the Nineteen Seventies and Nineteen Eighties, photographer Larry Racioppo, a South Brooklynite with roots 3 generations deep, recorded Brooklyn at the cusp of being the modern borough we all know today.

In Brooklyn Before Racioppo we could us see the energy of his local Brooklyn, stretching from historical Park Slope to the beginnings of Windsor Terrace and sundown Park. His black and white images pull us deep into the group, stretching our stories again greater than 40 years and teasing out the long-lost memories of lifestyles at the streets and in condominium houses. Racioppo has the attention-grabbing skill to inform a narrative in a single photo and, as a result of his local bona fides, he depicts an exciting set of real Brooklyn tales from the interior, in ways in which an intruder easily can't. at the pages of, Brooklyn prior to the intimacy and roughness of existence in a working-class group of Irish American, Italian American, and Puerto Rican households is proven with honesty and insight.

Racioppo’s 128 photos are paired with essays from journalist Tom Robbins and artwork critic and curator Julia Van Haaften. Taken jointly, the pictures and phrases of Brooklyn Before go back us to pre-gentrification Brooklyn and immerse us in a group outlined via paintings, kinfolk, and ethnic ties.
