Photographer Vincent Cianni lives, works, and dances the merengue in Brooklyn’s Southside neighborhood. This year, his work will appear in exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Museum of the City of New York.
Since 1994, I have been photographing the landscape and inhabitants of the Southside, a Latino neighborhood in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I began by making portraits of teenagers playing handball and basketball in the schoolyards. I was drawn to the mixture of arrogance and vulnerability in their faces, the naiveté and feigned maturity of their posturing.
