We held our first set of storefront photography and oral history workshops at the Neighborhood Preservation Center this month and one of the things we talked about is our personal connection between documenting graffiti and #momandpop storefronts. Since graffiti is a letter-based art form we were always interested in #type and #typography and we often looked at #storefront #signage, especially #handpainted signs and #neon with interesting #fonts. This photo captured both of our interests in one frame.
To hear more about our work documenting stores, please join us at our “Store Front II-A History Preserved” book discussion and signing with @gvshp_nyc at the Hudson Park Library in Greenwich Village this Wednesday April 25th at 6:30pm. It is free to attend but if possible please register in advance through @gvshp_nyc to ensure a spot as space is limited.
