A creative renaissance blooms in Brooklyn. At its heart is a thriving community of artisans producing a remarkable variety of handmade goods. In Brooklyn Makers, photographer Jennifer Causey captures the spirit of this homegrown movement by documenting thirty of the borough's most celebrated craftsmen. This eclectic mix of established and up-and-coming makers includes bakers, ceramic artists, clothing designers, florists, distillers, and more. With an eye for small details, Causey's charming photographs reveal each artisan at work in their own space. Her lively interviews reveal what inspires them, keeps them motivated, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work.

About the Author:

Jennifer Causey is a food and lifestyle photographer living in Brooklyn, New York.

Review:

"Diverse individuals concerned about where things come from are 'championing a return to craftsmanship and artisanal making,' Ms. Causey writes, adding that 'witnessing this firsthand is exhilarating.' So is turning the pages of her winsome tour in pictures and brief interviews." -- New York Times

"The words 'handmade' and 'maker' can feel like buzzwords, but Jen Causey brings them to life with respect and reverence for the skill, talent, and people behind them. I've been a fan of her website since the beginning and am thrilled to see the next generation of great makers celebrated and brought to life through Jen's photographs. Whether you're new to the handmade community or have been supporting it for years, this is a book that everyone should own. It's not only beautiful to flip through, but is a much-needed peek behind the scenes that helps us understand why is it so important to support makers of all types." -- Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge

"Jennifer Causey captures the craftsmanship of 30 of the borough's artisans. You'll find colorful images of her subjects--including chocolatiers, florists, and metalsmiths--and their workspaces, plus insightful Q&As." -- Martha Stewart Living

The creative heart of New York City, Brooklyn is in the midst of a makers movement. A community of artisans is thriving throughout the borough. Photographer Jennifer Causey captures this moment, documenting thirty of Brooklyn s celebrated craftsmen. Beautiful, full colour images showcase each artist s space and, perhaps most importantly, process and interviews reveal the inspiration behind the work as well as thoughts on the city where it s created. Featured makers include bakers, ceramic artists, clothing designers, florists, distillers and more. The thoughtfully curated collection provides a glimpse into handmade Brooklyn. This project is documented at From the author: As a food and lifestyle photographer, I have noticed a return to handmade and artisan produced products. I love discovering people who embrace a more tactile way of living, so I began a project to photograph the people behind the products. Living in Brooklyn, New York, I did not have to go far to find some amazing people. There were so many artisans and makers living right in my neighborhood. As I began my project, I knew I was photographing people who make things, but I soon realised I was also photographing people who make things happen. I discovered that by living and working in a supportive community, these makers were able to make their dreams a reality. As the project evolves, so does the adventure and pleasure of documenting these makers; in seeing their process, learning what inspires them, and what keeps them going. The goal of the photos is to show a bit of each maker s personality through personal details in their kitchens or studios. Each photo profile also includes a short questionnaire to learn more about them and their relationship with their community. Seller Inventory # AA29781616890742
