Arlene Schulman: The First 100 Years - Photographs

A selection of images from the exhibit,  Arlene Schulman: The First 100 Years.
Arlene Schulman started photographing the people of New York City when she was an eight year old living in Brooklyn. Using an Agfa 35mm camera handed down to her by her father who taught her how to shoot, develop, and print black and white film, she acquired her sharp eye for detail and an uncanny ability to demolish the wall between subject and camera to reveal the truth of who we are.
