Photographer Spotlights Brooklyn’s Unique Architecture On Colorful Backgrounds
By Kylie Woon, 11 Jul 2017
The neighborhood of Bushwick in Brooklyn, New York, is an architectural patchwork of brownstones townhouses, Queen Annes, and Romanesque Revival buildings that reflect the long and rich history of immigration and culture.
In dedication to this diversity, Israeli photographer Niv Rozenberg created ‘Boswijck’.
Rozenberg photographs individual Bushwick buildings for this series, and isolates them against colorful backgrounds that resemble PANTONE swatches to celebrate their architectural uniqueness.
“I am intrigued by the cultural confetti reflected in its diverse and colorful architecture. The work titled ‘Boswijck’ – the neighborhood’s original name, meaning ‘little town in the woods’ – highlights this diversity by visually isolating different architectural styles of this place and showing them as abstract two-dimensional relics,” says Rozenberg.
