Our own irascible shutterbug, Tom Callan, who has been shooting Brooklyn for the better part of three decades, has opened up his files for a retrospective of his work starting next Friday in Red Hook.
Some of our favorite Callan shots — many of which first appeared in The Brooklyn Paper — will be on display, lining the walls of the equally irascible Sunny’s Bar on Conover Street.
More than one toast will be raised to Callan at the opening night party at 8 pm.
“Everyone loves Tom because he’s a great photographer and a real straight shooter,” said Brooklyn Paper President Ed Weintrob. “That’s not a pun. He’s a real stand-up guy.”
“Photographs by Tom Callan” opens at Sunny’s Bar (253 Conover St., at Reed Street in Red Hook), July 20, 8 pm. Call (718) 625-8211 for information.
