Disappearing Storefronts

Curators/photographers Karla and James Murray, originally set out to document graffiti murals on the streets of Brooklyn in the early 90's.   Besides the ever changing graffiti, they were taken by the disappearing mom and pop stores usually hidden around the corner of a mural.  The wife and husband team immediately realized the need to document these historic facades and the story behind each of them.

Their work is being exhibited Sept. 10 - Dec. 28, 2008 at the Brooklyn Historical Society.  You can find interviews with James and Karla on the website as well as more photos.

Our Counter/Culture exhibit at the Brooklyn Historical Society has been extended until March 29, 2009. We also just released a book, "Store Front-The Disappearing Face of New York," which documents mom-and-pops in all 5 boroughs.
