I'm fortunate to be participating in Metro Texture II, which is an upcoming group exhibition of street photography from around the world. The show seeks to celebrate the unique beauty of the urban experience. It is curated by Liam Cotter of Solas Photography Studio and hosted at Con Artist Collective Gallery located at 119 Ludlow St. NYC, NY.
A show featuring people and scenes in and around New York City by Troy Barrow aka nusevoice, hosted by Think Coffee | think on the bowery | 1 Bleeker St. | Aug 14th – Sept 24th.
All profits from this show as well as 10% of think coffee’s profits go to Grand Street Settlement and Hudson Guild. These organizations run programs for children, teens, and the elderly in the Lower East Side and Chelsea neighborhoods of New York City.
Grand Street Settlement | www.grandsettlement.org
There is only one way to tell our story: people. In many ways, the story of our city is the story of us. Our stories of origin, our cultures and traditions, and our dreams for the future define us as individuals while uniting our families and communities. We grow when we are each inspired and thrive when we are all connected.
That’s where we come in.
The settlement house model came to New York when the city was at critical mass. People needed space for their dreams to grow and a place for their roots to gather. In 1916, Grand St. Settlement opened its doors, creating a community that would transcend place and time. What began as neighbors helping neighbors became a family.
