I took photographs of Harlem in 1979 and 1980. As an independent assignment for my photography class while working on my BFA at Pratt Institute from 1979 to 1982. The goal was to document the community I was born and raised in, rich in culture and controversy.
I wanted to share my body of work, and several experiences with fellow students and my professor, who more than likely knew of Harlem based on what they saw in the news. I wanted them to see of visually rich in history and culture.
