Truman Capote’s Brooklyn: The Lost Photographs of David Attie

Overview

In 1958, a photographer named David Attie was led through the streets of Brooklyn Heights by an unexpected guide—33-year-old Truman Capote.

The images Attie took that day were to illustrate Capote’s essay for Holiday magazine about his life in Brooklyn. Decades later, Brooklyn Historical Society exhibited these largely unseen photographs for the first time.
