Street Dreams Magazine Brings Portraits, Street Photography To The Seaport This Summer
One of the coolest things happening Downtown in this decidedly hot summer is Street Dreams Magazine’s “Celebrating The Wins” gallery, an exhibition which you can scope out at the Seaport through the end of July.
Our Explorer in Chief, Josh Katz, recently viewed the exhibition adorning the western facade of the former Fulton Market (1 Fulton Street) and its adjacent buildings. The outdoor gallery features original photography from 24 artists including Jose Silva, Billy Dinh, Jeremy Cohen and Paola Franqui. These huge prints are LED backlit, making the gallery extra spectacular to see at night.
The gallery has an indoor component at 27 Fulton Street, where Street Dreams has a residency. On the ground floor, you’ll find “Steve’s Flea Market,” where you can purchase tastefully-curated photo books, clothing and other merchandise from local artists and vendors.
Upstairs, the ‘“Celebrating the Wins” exhibition includes one room dedicated to prolific street photographer Joseph Rodriguez’s ”Harlem 96,’” which is being shown for the first time in the United States.
You can also find recent work from up-and-coming NYC-based photographers, consisting mostly of a tasteful mix of portraits and street photography. “Celebrating The Wins” runs through July 30.
