Life becomes a spectacle and if you happen to be an artist you record the passing show.
Henry Miller, Tropic of Capricorn
The Brooklyn Spectacle is countless hours spent chain-smoking and drinking wine from coffee mugs, of conversations in planes, in abandoned buildings, from nights wandering unfamiliar streets and lingering in bar after bar and approaching strangers.
Ideas are not developed in solitude, but result from exchange. The Brooklyn Spectacle is a place for that exchange.
Tim and Jake crossed paths in Mexico years ago and have since been scouring the metropoles of several countries coming into contact with a wide variety of kooks, hermits, debutantes and artistic elites. We have been inspired and want to share these characters and their ideas with others.
