125th: Time In Harlem

Working with a 4×5 field camera and photographer Edward Hillel, this  collaborative project focuses on Harlem’s 125th Street.  It is one of America’s iconic main streets in transition as global economic forces reconfigure the neighborhood’s physical and cultural landscape.

“Two men with a camera, thoughtfully observing the visual cacophony of one major thoroughfare and the complicated interplay of its history, its present, and the certainty of change, have laid the groundwork for a dialogue and a vision that reaches farther than human eyes can see.  The result is a unique photography book and exhibition that will not only expand how we see our neighborhoods, but the world around us.”

– Vicki Goldberg, noted Photography Historian, from 125th: Time in Harlem.
