Keith Ellenbogen, the assistant professor of Photography, has spent more than 500 hours capturing images of local marine life above and below the surface. Ellenbogen is an acclaimed underwater photographer who works in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Aquarium, and now a new exhibition of his work, Underwater Wildlife New York, is on view at Brooklyn Bridge Park through June 14.
The exhibition showcases the region’s most fascinating marine species through rarely seen underwater views of an astonishing variety of local marine species from Montauk, NY, to Cape May, NJ, and highlights the efforts of scientists to study and raise awareness of the conservation needs of local marine wildlife and their habitats.
The outdoor photographic display spanning 350 feet features nearly 50 images and takes viewers on a visual journey to reveal the extraordinary life hidden beneath the waves.
From June 5-8th, you can register to attend a four-day series of lectures, discussions, panels, and hands-on workshops focusing on sustainability and technology in fashion and textiles.
This program is designed for industry professionals as well as academics wishing to broaden their understanding of sustainability and how to support its integration into the industry.
Sessions have a broad-based focus on sustainability and the business of fashion from corporate, small and medium-sized enterprises, and educational viewpoints, giving participants from all areas of the fashion and textile industry an opportunity to deepen their knowledge and expand their outlook.
