Today (1/24), starting at 7pm will be the opening reception and post-screening discussion of award-winning documentary filmmaker and photographer (not to mention GL contributor and friend), Nathan Kensinger’s Abandoned Brooklyn and “Covered Tracks” at UnionDocs (322 Union Ave. b/w 1st & Maujer Streets).

[Nate’s] work explores off-limits parts of the urban landscape. For the last five years, he has been documenting the industrial neighborhoods of New York City. His documentary “Covered Tracks” – which explores an abandoned homeless city underneath Manhattan – is currently screening at festivals around the country including Slamdance, The Boston Underground and Rooftop Films. In 2008, his photos of Brooklyn’s endangered industrial waterfront were exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum and in a solo show at the Brooklyn Library titled “Twilight on the Waterfront: Brooklyn’s Vanishing Industrial Heritage.”
