Artist Talk: Documenting Urban Change

About this Event

Land dispossession both historically and in modern times has affected the experiences of people of color all over the world. Whether through colonialism or gentrification Black and Brown people have had to grapple with the real challenges brought on by population growth, capitalism and greed.

In the third artist talk from our virtual exhibition series “West Harlem Arts: Resilience 2021,” we bring together four intergenerational artists that are all documenting the urban environment and using their voice to record and bring attention to this ongoing dilemma. Join Cathleen Campbell, Daisy Ruiz, Jonas St. Juste and Nicole Goodwin as they share their experience documenting the land, people and places that they call home.

Landscape Photography Prints from “The Riverside” Series

Price: $25

These are fine art, hand pulled, prints depicting Riverside Park & the Hudson River landscape in New York City as viewed from Manhattan. Measuring 6″ x 9″, the prints were executed with chromogenic print on Fuji Deep Matte paper and were created in 2021. The prints are unframed and signed in ink on the back in the lower right hand corner.

C-type, or chromogenic printing is the process which the digital image is projected onto light-sensitive paper with silver-based chemistry. The paper is exposed to light, and the image is infused into the paper through a chemical process.

Jonas St. Juste (b. 1995) is an emerging fine art photographer born, and currently based in, Harlem, New York City.
