Vero Bielinski

Brooklyn Hipsters

In her constant search for the 'wonders of reality' Vero ended in New York City's borough of Brooklyn. There one finds the birthplace of the hipster phenomenon, an urban, superficial subculture oriented to consumption as a celebration the desire for individuality. Fashion is the strongest form of expression for the hipsters, and they use the street as their stage for seeing and being seen. With her street portraits in Brooklyn Hipsters Bielinski shows individuals who strive for uniqueness, but fail to realize that they wear a uniform.
