Down These Mean Streets: Community and Place in Urban Photography

(Venerdì) (Domenica)

America’s urban streets have long inspired documentary photographers. After World War II, populations shifted from the city to the suburbs and newly built highways cut through thriving neighborhoods, leaving isolated pockets within major urban centers. As neighborhoods started to decline in the 1950s, the photographers in this exhibition found ways to call attention to decaying cities and their forgotten residents. Down These Mean Streets unites works by Frank Espada, Camilo José Vergara, Anthony Hernandez, Ruben Ochoa, Manuel Acevedo and others who were driven to document and reflect on the state of our cities during these transformative years.America’s urban streets have long inspired documentary photographers.
