Thanks to the insights from BLDG 92 visiting artist C’naan Hamburger, we have three more finalists for our Brooklyn Navy Yard photography contest. These three photos were selected from a battery of 31 submitted from our spring photography tour back in April. After the winter submissions, we’re now halfway to our goal of 12 finalist photos, which will be put on display in BLDG 92 later this year.
Here are the spring finalists, in no particular order:
About this photo by Andy Omel, C’naan writes: “The minimal and heavily-textured image is quite striking. One can imagine a workplace where the face masks are worn by all and discarded without a second thought. The color and the geometry is bold and irresistible.”
From Gloria Picciano, C’naan says this photo “finds whimsy in the midst of an industrial park. The photo made me think of a cartoon rabbit hole, with the bright blue sky and a 19th century industrial building, framed by a cracked road and trash.”
Finally, Michael Mooney “uses subtle color in a splendid way. Each structure is part of the cool blue palate. It takes a chance by not relying on a bright contrast as a calibrating device, and just swims in the chosen colors.”
Turnstile Tours offers the Seasonal Photography Tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard four times throughout the year. The last tour of the 2016 season will be Saturday, October 29 at 11am. Get more information here, and advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. We also offer our Past, Present & Future Tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard every weekend 2-4pm, and other special themed tours of The Yard. All tours are offered in partnership with and begin at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, which offers free admission to three floors of exhibitions on the Yard’s past and present and a host of great special events and programs.
