Lets hear it for Brooklyn!! Brooklyn!! AFROPUNK FEST was back this August for another weekend of live music. AFROPUNK FEST is like the rebirth of the 70’s. The new trend setters are a mixture of young and old people, but the old refuses to age because they are still drinking the nectar of free jazz, funk, hip hop, hard rock, heavy metal. The colors, music and togetherness we share. AFROPUNK give our souls a new fusion to life.

"Crossing", Lower Broadway. "I had no formal training in photography, no real knowledge of the rules or major concepts that defined the field," says Gucwa. "Working with the limited tools that I had really enticed me to learn more about light, and set me on a lifelong journey of trying to capture something as fleeting...as the transient quality of New York City."
