“Capturing the Faces and Voices of Manhattan’s Neighborhood Storefronts” is a photography and oral history workshop of the cultural significance of mom-and-pop stores in the borough of Manhattan and the impact they have on the pulse, life, and texture of their communities. There will be two separate 2-session workshops held at the Neighborhood Preservation Center in the East Village culminating in an exhibition of each participant’s work at The Little Underground Gallery at the Jefferson Market Library in Greenwich Village from August 1 – October 1, 2018.
The workshops teach how photography and oral history can be tools for public awareness and advocacy. Participants will learn to create their own powerful photographs of neighborhood storefronts as well as record oral histories with shop owners, which communicate artistically and are insightful and moving. Taught by acclaimed photographers and best-selling authors Karla Murray and James Murray.
Capturing the Faces and Voices of Manhattan’s Neighborhood Storefronts is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
