Williamsburg,a place I once called home (New Book)

Jul 31, 2018

Williamsburg, a place I once called home Is a coming-of-age story of a young Spanish immigrant who moved to New York in 1990 and stayed. With little money and no concrete plan, Catalán found a cheap place to live and people who cared for her in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, an industrial neighborhood in decline. Williamsburg, A Place I Once Called Home is Catalán's personal record of her life in Williamsburg between the years of 1994 and 1996. The book is at once a wonderful record of a particular epoch and a historical archive of the many places in Williamsburg which have radically changed or cease to exist. More than two decades later, Catalán continues to live in Williamsburg, a reluctant witness to its massive transformation and the disappearance of familiar places and faces. This book is her ode to what it once was, a place she once called home. Published by #RedHookEditions  #nyc #williamsburg #brooklyn#blackandwhitephotography #home @burgstories
