Ryan John Lee's 'Soul of a City'
The Loisaida Center has a new exhibit starting tomorrow evening featuring the work of East Village-based photographer Ryan John Lee. (He has shared his work with EVG in the past, such as here and here.)
The exhibit, which will remain up through March, is titled "Soul of the City."
Per Lee: "The soul of a city is manifested through its inhabitants: its newspaper sellers, subway riders, pavement pounders, window shoppers, among others. These seemingly banal routines and daily tasks are what feed a city’s energy and identity. Soul of a City represents a collection of these everyday moments I’ve been fortunate enough to capture."
"Soul of the City" is accompanied by an auction wall to benefit the Loisaida Center and Puerto Rican relief.
The opening tomorrow is from 6-8:30 p.m. The Loisaida Center is at 710 E. Ninth St. ... just east of Avenue C. Find more details here.
