Harlem’s 125th Street is a marker of twentieth-century urban experience, a thoroughfare that encapsulates powerful stories of business and consumption, real estate and gentrification, glamour and entertainment, and political uprising. This book explores the constant mutation of this street life through the works of a large roster of photographers and performance artists.
125th Street: Photography in Harlem includes investigations on twenty-four featured artists, four historic landmarks, and two comprehensive timelines.
Contributions by Hunter College MFA and MA, Art History students and recent graduates, and foreword by LeRonn P. Brooks.
