Brighton Beach, Brooklyn
Brighton Beach is a seaside resort in Brooklyn also known as Little Odessa. There have been a number of waves of Russian émigrés to this neighborhood. Many of them after the fall of the Soviet Union. There is a boardwalk there that is a short walk from Coney Island and the amusement park. The majority of the commercial district in Little Odessa are independent businesses with signs in Russian and sit underneath the elevated train tracks. It is ideal for street photography and very much a throwback, a bit of a time capsule which creates a timeless quality to photos. The next Sunday Street Photography Workshop is in Little Odessa on 12 February. Just a few spaces are still available!
