For the past 10 years, street photographer Patrick Barr aka Tiger Hood has become a local legend known for bringing golf to the streets of NYC. It’s a game that requires only three items: a golf club, a newspaper-stuffed milk carton, and a crate. What was initially just a way for Barr to pass time, has gained traction from major news outlets and celebrities on a global scale. However, street golf seems to overshadow his true passion…photography. Barr’s archive consists of thousands of mind-blowing film photographs of NYC from the 1990s to 2000s. His goal was to preserve a time and place that he predicted would dissolve in the coming years. With his archive as evidence, he predicted correctly.
“Neighborhood Golf Association” is a short documentary by longtime friend, Nicolas Heller aka New York Nico. The 12-minute film explores a day in the life of Barr supplemented by archive footage collected over their three-year friendship.
