Brooklyn: Gorgeous B&W photos of 1970s apartment life
- In 1976 a woman named Dinanda H. Nooney became interested in Brooklyn, while working as a volunteer for George McGovernâ€™s short-lived presidential campaign (he had lost to Nixon in 1972, of course, and he soon found that the Democratic Party wasnâ€™t interested in a second attempt). Two years later, she used the connections she had made in order to undertake a survey of the borough. Along the way, she got more interested in the people living in some of the homes she was researching, and she began to ask permission to do portraits of families in their homes. Many of these sitters referred other potentially willing subjects to her.
