Russo's by Nick Ledwitz


As part of our fourth annual East Village Arts Festival, we are excited to host James and Karla Murray, acclaimed photographers and authors of Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York, Store Front II: A History Preserved, and many more

In this online discussion, James and Karla discuss and show the work created by the participants of their 2020 Mom and Pop Storefronts workshop. 

Experience activism and community through the lens of photographers, as they display their work from a free virtual 2020 workshop with acclaimed photographers and award-winning authors Karla and James Murray. In partnership with the East Village Community Coalition, James & Karla taught participants how to use photography and oral history to raise public
awareness, build community, and encourage advocacy. Participants learned to create their

own powerful photographs and artwork of neighborhood storefronts and to connect with the proprietors through personal interviews.
