Mind your Q’s

“Click!,” the publicly curated photo show currently hanging at the Brooklyn Museum, has made stars of local shutterbugs, all of whom had to adhere to the theme of “Changing Faces of Brooklyn.”

There’s at least one photographer being exhibited, though, who art-savvy Brooklynites are already familiar with: The Brooklyn Paper’s own Tom Callan. The accomplished Brooklyn Heights artist submitted “Microcosm of the World,” pictured, his 2003 photo of the Q train, which has — after two rounds of judging — made it into the show.

“I heard about [‘Changing Faces of Brooklyn’] and the title struck me,” said Callan. “It hit a chord because I have thousands of pictures of Brooklyn, and that picture came to mind, because it was literally many faces of Brooklyn in the setting of a subway train.”

The photographe was thrilled to be included.

“It was just a whim, I never thought anything would happen with it,” said Callan. “For me to be in the Brooklyn Museum, it’s pretty cool.”

“Click!” is on display through Aug. 10 at the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Pkwy. at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights). Admission is $8, $4 for students and seniors. For information, call (718) 638-5000 or visit www.brooklynmuseum.org.
