Harlem Street Portraits by Harvey Stein

Back to


Harvey Stein captures the essense of Harlem, with close-up evocative portraits made over a 23 year period from 1990 to 2012. Each portrait is more than a depiction of a person; it is an intimate record that necessitates direct engagement between photographer and subject showing the mutuality between people. Accompanying the photographs are essays by African American activist, writer and teacher Herb Boyd, and writer and third generation New Yorker, Miss Rosen.harveysteinphoto.com
