Capturing the Faces and Voices of Manhattan's Neighborhood Storefronts

Experience activism and community through the lens of photographers, as they display their work from two free 2018 
workshops with acclaimed photographers and award-winning authors James & Karla MurrayIn two sessions at the Neighborhood Preservation Center, the famed duo taught participants how to use photography and oral history to raise public awareness, build community, and encourage advocacy. Participants learned to create their own powerful photographs of neighborhood storefronts and connected with owners through interviews. 

The workshops culminates in an exhibition of each participant's work at The Little Underground Gallery in the Jefferson Market Library from August 1 - October 1, 2018. The opening reception was Friday, August 3 and free and open to the public. Please see this flyer for more details.
