Meet at the Brooklyn Bears Community Garden, Pacific Street and Flatbush Avenue, entrance on Pacific. If there's *heavy* rain or snow, we'll change the meeting place to Freddy's Bar, 485 Dean, corner of Sixth Avenue.
A group of Atlantic Yards photographers are getting together to take pictures in the footprint on Sunday. This in response to people getting harassed by official staff when taking pictures there. They hope to use the opportunity to help people both sides of the fence, and lens, to be more aware of photographers rights. The Atlantic Yards footprint offers a surprising range of subjects, including beautiful but quickly disappearing homes and industrial architecture.
Photographers, videographers, bloggers, and supporters. News media are welcome.
A "photographers' rights free expression mobilization" responding to the harassment of video artist/teacher Katherin McInnis by an MTA police officer last Sunday, February 3rd on public property within the Atlantic Yards footprint. We will discuss photographers' rights and the Atlantic Yards situation, then walk and photograph within the footprint. Depending on circumstances, we may have the opportunity to engage in a respectful information exchange with MTA police and/or private security personnel. End point: Freddy's Bar and Backroom, 485 Dean Street, corner of Sixth Avenue.
