Isaac Diggs & Edward Hillel
125th: Time in Harlem examines Harlem’s paradox of place: the tension between the everyday reality of its streets and the cultural brand it has established in our collective imagination. Through the collaboration of photographers Isaac Diggs, a professor at the School of Visual Arts, and Edward Hillel, founder of the Harlem Biennial, the multidimensional project took flight. Rich, large-format color photographs weave through essays by Vicki Goldberg and historian Jonathan Gill, telling a story of a place and a moment in the history of this iconic African American community. As photography critic and curator Goldberg writes of the project, “Two men with a camera, thoughtfully observing the visual cacophony of one major thoroughfare and the complicated interplay of its history.” A limitededition of 1,000; each copy signed by the artists.
