If you read GL, the name Harriet Zucker might ring a bell. She is the artist and kind soul who has devoted a great deal of time to caring for and saving Red Hook's Revere Sugar dogs. Ms. Zucker is now organizing a cool photography project called "What's the Hook." It will involve photographers shooting Red Hook between August 12-18 and submitting them for display at different places around the neighborhood and on a website being created for the project. Her is some of what Ms. Zucker wrote to GL:
"What’s The Hook" is a community-based photography project designed to document one week in the life of Red Hook, Brooklyn, one of New York City’s most unique and rapidly changing neighborhoods. Open to locals and visitors alike, “What’s The Hook” encourages photographers of all backgrounds to submit digital images captured during the week of August 12th – 18th. This week has been selected as it begins with Red Hook Old Timer’s Day, an annual event that has been going on for more than 30 years. "What’s The Hook?" encourages submissions from photographers of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. "What’s the Hook?" hopes to feature images from every possible time of day, angle of vantage, and facet of life that exists in Red Hook.
The website has a lot more information and specifics. Go forth and photograph.
