The exhibition, celebrating the start of the restoration process for the Lefferts Historic House in Prospect Park, showcases Shabazz’s vision of his “Oasis in Brooklyn.” Across 41 years of photographing in Prospect Park, Shabazz has captured reunion picnics, musicians, races, dog walks, and so much more. Exhibited along the construction fence surrounding the historic house, the community of Brooklyn will be able to discover new stories, and recognize old friends.
