#MakossaBK 2018 Season Finale

2018 ushers in the 9th consecutive summer for the Makossa Brooklyn Cookout. Still considered one of the best outdoor summer soirees in Brooklyn, Wonway Posibul of Latin Soul Brothers links up with NYC-based event promotion team Rare Form to bring his famous Makossa sound from San Francisco to NYC to create a bicoastal vibe like none other. Since its birth in the backyard of Williamsburg boutique/gallery Fresthetic in 2010, the monthly cookouts have garnered a loyal following and experienced incredible growth, including the Makossa Los Angeles Cookout and a three-city tour in 2017 (Charlotte, Chicago, and Atlanta) sponsored by Miller Lite.

I took almost 5,000 images this year 😲 It wasn't easy to whittle it down but jump in and find out my ten favorite portraits I took in 2017, a few select street shots, and more!
