By Etienne Frossard: Brooklyn's 'Virgin of Sorrows'

A few months ago I posted a few pictures of the Good Friday procession through the nighttime streets of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The procession -- with its dramatically grieving "Virgin of Sorrows," carried behind her dead son, Jesus -- was brought over from the Italian island of Bari , where many of the neighborhoods' residents come from.

My friend Etienne Frossard was also shooting in Carroll Garden that night. Here is a selection of his excellent coverage:
