Passengers - THE BROOCH
by Isa Brito
Silver gelatin print
Isa Brito’s photographs from her exhibition Passengers are telling stories of New York’s street life in the 1980s and 90s. Brito’s love affair with the camera helped her obtain a provocative and poetic body of black and white photographic work. Her keen imagery document moments in time, many which would not be seen without her gritty photography of New York’s underground that consists of drag queens, club kids, and performers. Brito’s photographs take viewers into a world of bizarre, enthralling nightlife affairs that go beyond imagination.
Drag queen posing at Limelight, a nightclub that was housed in a former church that was built in 1840; a place to dance to unfamiliar music and score recreational drugs.
