You probably remember the NYC Street Photography Collective (NYC-SPC) from our interview with Jorge Garcia and Mathew Wasik. Or you may have checked out one of their stand-out projects (you might recall their Halloween project or the solar eclipse project we featured here on the blog.) If not, this is a collective you need to get acquainted with – and this week you have the perfect chance. The collective explains:
“The NYC Street Photography Collective (NYC-SPC) is hosting its second annual members exhibition from August 23-26 at Soho Photo Gallery in New York City. The show will include the recent work of 22 artists and presents a rare opportunity to view a wide range of contemporary street photography by New York photographers. Prints and other work will be up for sale during the show.
“The artists will be present and available for interviews during the reception on Thursday, August 23 with beer donated by SixPoint Brewery. On Friday, August 24, a discussion panel on street photography will be held featuring acclaimed New York photographers Richard Sandler, Melissa O’Shaughnessy, and Melanie Einzig as well as a book signing with the panelists.”

About the NYC Street Photography Collective (NYC-SPC)
NYC-SPC, a non-profit 501(c)3, is a collective made up of a small group of passionate street
photographers that are dedicated to creating and sharing the art of capturing life in public
spaces. The group was founded in early 2015.
The group offers members and anyone who is interested in the genre an opportunity to explore street photography with like minded individuals through engagement with a local community that shares resources and promotes work of individuals. The group also regularly produces zines and organizes exhibitions, talks, and events to highlight photographs from members or talented photographers they discover.
