Funnel Cakes and Broken Dreams

Stumbled across Mike Peters’ excellent Flickr this afternoon while trolling through a Hasselblad pool and I’m digging it, especially the Coney Island sets featured here.

At times the collection may feel a little (just a little) exploitative (see: random fat people shot for being fat and random) but overall this is a great cross section of documentary style photography in NY and Jersey.  On film and on a Hasselblad.  I liiike.  To quote Kristy Martino, “You CANNOT beat a square format, man.”

Matter of fact, I’m gonna dedicate this post to Kristy for a couple reasons: 1.  She had a nice Hasselblad that she loved and had to pawn for gas money (buzzkill) and 2. As a recent NYC transplant, I know she’s missing Coney Island and all it’s weirdness, sadness and wonderousness.
