Brooklyn Greenway Initiative Book Launch

The public is invited to Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) Gallery on Saturday, October 6, 2012 to celebrate the book launch of IMAGES OF RED HOOK, featuring the urban landscape photography of Thomas Rupolo.

IMAGES OF RED HOOK is a visual representation of this unique part of Brooklyn but is much more than simply a gallery of photos.  Containing over 120 color images of industrial sites (some long-gone), urban mosaics, close-ups, panoramas, a sunset or two, and cranes, lots of cranes – this book provides an in-depth view of this fascinating and vibrant place.

Through the eyes of Thomas Rupolo and the voices of both new and old members of this community, IMAGES OF RED HOOK explores the past, present and future of this neighborhood.

Book Launch:
Saturday, October 6, 5PM-9PM

BGI Gallery, 153 Columbia Street, Brooklyn

30% of proceeds from the sale of IMAGES OF RED HOOK will be donated by the artist to support BGI’s work.
