Italian Social Club in South Brooklyn.

This is a series of photos I made for a recent story on the South Brooklyn Post about an on-going dispute between two Italian social clubs who share the same religious idol from Mola, Italy.  This story deals with the rights of women in the group and their feeling that they are not giving the respect nor positions of power they are entitled.  They also want to modernize this “old school” organization which the men did not take to kindly.   Read it.  The original story introduced the Mola social club of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn and also has a photo series.  Its pretty rare to get such access to this private, insular media shy organizations.
