DescriptionConey Island's amusement park in Brooklyn, New York featured all these advertised acts. This street scene attempts to capture the seediness that now exists. In its' heyday, all these acts were part of what brought people to this part of the world. Carney acts are a thing of the past, but films and photos as well as books recall what was once.
Madeline Ellis, New York Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement I am married and I have one daughter, 26. I studied photography and interior design. I enjoy blending the two. Almost everything that I shoot ends up on my wall and enhances my space. For the past 3 years I have been showing my work. When someone purchases one of my photos, I become a part of their life and in a small way have brightened up their space. It is a very gratifying feeling.
