|"Jennifer Causey has earned the admiration of just about every community of makers I know. She approaches each artist with a sense of wonder and respect and has a way of documenting them and their processes that truly lets their skill and dedication shine." Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge
A creative renaissance blooms in Brooklyn. At its heart is a thriving community of artisans producing a remarkable variety of handmade goods. In Brooklyn Makers, photographer Jennifer Causey captures the spirit of this homegrown movement by documenting thirty of the borough's most celebrated craftsmen. This eclectic mix of established and up-and-coming makers includes bakers, ceramic artists, clothing designers, florists, distillers, and more. With an eye for small details, Causey's charming photographs reveal each artisan at work in their own space. Her lively interviews reveal what inspires them, keeps them motivated, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work.
Brooklyn Makers features an introduction by Eric Demby, cofounder of the Brooklyn Flea (where many makers get their start) and an index with useful information on local markets and other favorite Brooklyn spots. Featured makers include Lotta Jansdotter (textile designer), Lena Corwin (printer), Mast Brothers Chocolate (craft chocolate makers), Clam Lab (ceramic artist), Shabd (clothing designer), Morris Kitchen (mixologists), and more.
