Do you remember what it was like when you first moved into your home? There was no furniture, no pictures on the walls, and nothing could stop you from making the space your own. It was chock full of one thing: possibility.
Now, think about your home today. It’s filled with items you’ve collected over the years. Although it’s your home, you can’t help but feel something is missing. A story? A conversation piece? A picture? You’re ready for a fresh new look, but where do you start?
Our suggestion: your walls.
The art you choose to display defines not only the space you live and work in, but you. By replacing a worn out picture with a more dramatic print, you can instantly change the mood in a given room, and decor that was once tired and worn out gains new life. What people ignored before now gets noticed. Soon, your home is the one that impresses your friends and family most.
It’s this excitement of new possibility that motivated us to create Brooklyn Prints.
It started with a New York scene captured on film
In 2009, we opened our web shop featuring a single New York photographer, Chad Gayle. He sees New York through a unique lens, using an array of cameras to share his vantage point with the world. Most importantly, he has a laser focus on the quality of each picture. He wants everyone who looks at his photographs to feel as if they’re there, in the scene. To do that, every detail must be perfectly presented on the print.
To do this, Chad primarily uses medium format and large format film as well as full frame digital equipment. He packs up his Linhof, his Hasselblad, his Leica, or his Nikon and takes to the streets to capture the essence of NYC, such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park benches and the Manhattan skyline.
And he’s not alone in his passion for quality photography. Other photographers are on the streets and in the suburbs of New York finding new ways to highlight the best sides of this city’s culture on film and with digital cameras.
That’s why in 2012, he opened the shop and welcomed other New York photographers to make their photographs available. The only requirement? The images had to be of the highest quality.
Because quality is paramount at Brooklyn Prints
Today, their additions help fill our store with more imagery from the Big Apple and beyond. We’re proud to offer the largest selection of the highest quality New York prints.
We sell more than just pictures for your wall. We sell conversation pieces that are crystal clear and unforgettable.
Nothing is more eye-catching than a crisp, high-quality black and white photograph or scenic landscape print on your wall. Nothing paints a picture, sets a mood and inspires a story better than a picture of some of the greatest places and spaces on earth. That’s why we put such a profound emphasis on the quality of the prints offered at Brooklyn Prints.
Our photographs are unique. Although we offer photographs of New York landmarks and scenery, you won’t find the same tired images here. We work hard to bring you the widest selection of pictures showing off the freshest views of New York.
Our sizing is intentional. Bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to enlarging photographic images. You also won’t find large prints stretched to fit specific dimensions on Brooklyn Prints. Why? Because we are sticklers for only printing our photographs in sizes that stay true to the absolute best clarity. If it doesn’t look good printed at a certain size, we won’t offer it.
