Brooklyn Heights Boarding House – Photos by Scott Rudd

We met Scott Rudd during the MoMA’s Documentary Fortnight series in February.  We got to talking about small domestic spaces in New York City and he shared with us a photo series that he’s been working on for quite some time about a boarding house in Brooklyn Heights.  As it turns out, he also knows Annie Ling and her photography of tenement buildings in Chinatown.  His photographs have a fascinating quiet tension to them and we found that to be an interesting parallel to Annie’s work in Chinatown just across the East River.
