Photography Through a Civic Lens: Builder Levy and Brian Palmer in Conversation with Bonnie Yochelson


The work of a photographer fuses the creation of art with the documentation of history.

Brooklyn-born photographer Builder Levy, whose work is the focus of the forthcoming exhibition The Photographs of Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets, and visual journalist Brian Palmer, who works in photography and documentary film, come together to reflect on the common thread in their art: documenting politically charged moments in the midst of daily life, in the city, nation and world. Their conversation is moderated by Bonnie Yochelson, photo-historian, independent curator, and author of numerous books, including Berenice Abbott: Changing New York and Rediscovering Jacob Riis.

Presented in connection with the exhibition The Photographs of Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets.
