Down These Mean Streets, Photographs by Will Steacy
Tony by Will Steacy
Down These Mean Streets, a solo show of work by photographer Will Steacy, opens at Michael Mazzeo gallery in Chelsea Thursday, June 10th. Steacy, a contributing photographer to Aperture’s ongoing Greencart comission and a 2008 Tierney fellow, spent the past three years traveling to American cities and walking at night from the airport to the city’s central business district with his large format camera. The resulting images provide a rarely seen view of post-industrialist American inner cities, as years of neglect have left them with limited resources. The exhibition will include never before seen images, as well as a special limited edition newspaper (available for $5 at the opening) which is part of a larger installation on display exploring Steacy’s working process through journals, research notes, contact sheets, shot lists, influences and maps.
