The landscapes of large urban centers are in constant transformation and in search of identity. Cities are structures that grow, resurrect and develop by creating new images and experiences capable withstanding the changes of costumes and traditions.
Caique Cunha runs through Williamsburg, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, documenting the changes and diverse culture. His peculiar look exhibits expressive elements of a local transformation. Caique captures both visual and emotional images of what one experiences when the city is experiencing an unexpected rapid expansion in a process known as Gentrification.
The registration of a little explored region enhances the look and the relationships between space, time and its inhabitants. Key for the life of a city.
With frameworks that emphasize the disconnect between the local culture and the new structure, Caique tells stories, indifference, conflicts and complexity plans. The 26 images shown were captured and produced between 2013 and 2016. It proposes a captivating dialogue between analog, digital and instant photography.
Curated by Rodrigo Santana and produced by Studio Rico, this exhibition presents a visual overview of the human, architectural and urban landscapes in Williamsburg by introducing the discussion between the aesthetic ambitions of photography and its documentary function.
This collection was shown for the first time at the main hall of School of Visual Arts in New York City, throughout January 2016.
