In 2002, The Little Bookroom published Truman Capote's homage to Brooklyn, A House in the Heights. In 2014, the original photographs commissioned to illustrate the 1959 piece were discovered by the photographer's son. Capote's essay was the first magazine assignment for David Attie and he shot many of the photos during the course of a day, with Capote in tow. Also found among the negatives were ravishing portraits of Capote taken on that same day; none of the photos have ever published. Now, in a new edition with a new title, Capote's Brooklyn: The Lost Photographs, the images will be published for the first time. The more than 80 images provide a stunning and atmospheric visual portrait of 1950s Brooklyn - its buildings, shops, street life, lost moments - a Brooklyn at once strangely familiar yet largely vanished: horse-drawn wagons delivering produce to housewives, kids swimming in the East River and getting into mischief on the docks, dimly-lit bars, vintage signs, bricklayers, and barbers, all set against a backdrop of period architecture, that spectacular bridge, and the skyline of Manhattan.
