Faces of Harlem

portfolio

Faces of Harlem is a ongoing collection of environmental portraits capturing the re-gentrification of Harlem. This project was conceived by Ilene Squires Photography in the Fall of 2010, though it was years in the making drawing from the likes of legendary photographers James Van Der Zee, Gordon Parks and Mary Ellen Mark. Faces of Harlem captures the essence of the new class of Harlemites; it is a visual journey where old school intersects with urban chic. Subjects are native Harlemites and fellow transplants, self styled and shot in their home and neighborhood.
