The 4th Street Photo Gallery

The 4th Street Photo Gallery The 4th Street Photo Gallery, established in 1973, is a ground-floor alternative exhibitions spaces And so it has been 4th Street.

Located for some 30 years on the same stretch of urban pavement between the Bowery and Second Avenue in the East Village, this inconspicuous store-front gallery cm meeting space has been a quiet locus of activity, providing numerous photographers with their earliest opportunities to put their work on public display. Indeed 4th Street, as it is commonly referred to, has often seemed to be somethin

g more akin to the neighbourhood barbershop. In the community, one not only goes to the barbershop to get a haircut, but to engage in the social repartee that usually takes place in that enlivened social space. While the ostensible business is the business of exhibiting photographs, regular habitues also know that a few minutes spent there will usually find you engaged in a lively exchange with other regulars who are just likely to spontaneously drop by. Of such things are communities made, and from such encounters do new communities spring.

The 4th Street Photo Gallery home to the non-profit Minority Photographers in 1972, is at risk of closing due to continued gentrification and marginalization of POC artists spaces. Please HELP KEEP US OPEN!

Our goal is to keep the doors open and continue with work and student apprenticeships for 5 more years to make it to the 50TH ANNIVERSARY of the space and organization. Check out the incentives to get a historical piece from Alex's private collection of images that span the 1950's to the present!

While New York was the city of dreams for some, Black artists like Alex Harsley experienced a different scene. Born in the late '30s in South Carolina, he set his sights on New York in 1948… and eventually found his calling – photography – and much more.
