Harlem gots DA Blues, 2007

Many of the traditional Black neighborhoods in New York are being lost to gentrification. While Harlem remains the spiritual and historical capital of Afro-America, many of its residents are becoming casualties of economic and cultural aggression. No wonder Harlem got Da Blues . . .

I’m very honored to have been asked to participate in the 2007 Harlem Postcards, and was thrilled with the opportunity to get to know Harlem a little. In my work as a photographer
and installation artist, I’m interested in representing the beauty and struggle of everyday life and that’s how I approached making this photo.
