Before it became part of New York City in 1898, Brooklyn was a city of its own. It is from this point of inspiration that The City Within: Brooklyn Photographs by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb presents more than thirty images. Alex Webb has sought to canvas Brooklyn with an emphasis on exploring its tremendous cultural diversity, from Mexican and Caribbean Brooklyn to Chinese Brooklyn. By contrast, Rebecca Norris Webb has photographed the green heart of Brooklyn, its parks and gardens, as the contemplative core for this body of work. Through their works we come to see the complex beauty of the borough.
