A couple of hours before dawn, on the first Monday of September, people dance through the streets of Crown Heights in Brooklyn, New York, to mark the beginning of Lent. Known as the West Indian American Day Carnival, the annual tradition is based on J'Ouvert, the Caribbean pre-dawn festival. Photographer David Katzenstein was there to capture the calypso atmosphere, the partying and the dancing, the costumes and the body paint.
