Coney Island Sand Sculpture Contest

"In every child who is born, under no matter what circumstances, and of no matter what parents, the potentiality of the human race is born again: and in him, too, once more, and of each of us, our terrific responsibility toward human life; toward the utmost idea of goodness, of the horror of terror, and of God."
- James Agee, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

James Agee, a journalist and photographer, spent his short life and career documenting the beauty of the everyday life he saw around him in the rural south. His sense of awe at the importance of the humanity in the most humble places led to a Pulitzer Prize in fiction in 1958.

We were often think of James Agee as we view the work of gifted local photographer Allyson Howard. Allyson documents the sights she sees locally in Brooklyn, often capturing images that resonate with the vibrant life of community and humanity. These images of the sand sculpture contest at Coney Island were posted yesterday.
