A Brooklyn photography exhibit showcases the city in a new light — even though the space itself is completely dark.
The camera obscura exhibit at Gowanus Loft features images of the five boroughs from unusual angles.
You might be familiar with the concept of camera obscura — which means dark room in Latin.
On a smaller scale, you can project images by making a tiny hole in something like a cereal box.
"The technology is very simple," said Ashton Worthington, a managing partner at Gowanus Loft. "All you need is a dark space, black out the windows and poke a hole, and you can create an image of whatever you see outside project on the walls of your space."
The exhibit runs through April 8. Reservations and tickets are at the gallery's web site.
