Uncovering Capote: New photos on display in Brooklyn

For fans of photography, the work of David Attie is often instantly recognisable.

But now nearly 35 years after his death, Attie's photos are gaining a wider appreciation.

His son, Eli Attie, uncovered images by accident from a shoot with Truman Capote, before the author was a household name.

Now they are on display at the Brooklyn Historical Society and he spoke to us about the find and his father's work.
