Opening now through February 11th, Caroll Taveras will have open photo studios sessions for the public in a storefront in Brooklyn. Photo Studio will be a place for everyone to have their photograph taken with a large format view camera in the tradition that was once popular in local portrait studios around the world.

For only $5, Caroll Taveras' Atlantic Avenue storefront in downtown Brooklyn will provide instant 4x5 Polaroid photographic portraits to neighbors, friends, and passersby. Photo Studio is a not-for-profit art project focused on documenting communities around the world.

Photo Studio will remain open through February 11th before continuing to Berlin in the Spring.
