Marcia Due has photographed in New York City since the mid-1970s. She began to concentrate on using a hand-held camera to photograph people on the street after photographing visitors to the World Trade Center site in 2001. The pictures in this show have been taken since then.
Jerry Thompson has been stopping strangers on the streets of New York City to photograph them since the 1970s. For this exhibition he has selected some recent pictures and paired each with a related picture made much earlier.
Due and Thompson both attended the Yale School of Art, where they studied with Thom Brown, Walker Evans, John T. Hill, and Herbert Matter.
Thompson’s first exhibition was in the Jonathan Edwards Common room in 1974.
This exhibition and its accompanying catalogue were organized and produced with the generous support of the Newington-Cropsey Foundation, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.
