Ruben Natal -San Miguel: NYC: Concrete Jungle

There are only a few more days to see the show of Ruben Natal-San Miguel’s photography at the Washington Heights branch of NYPL. His photographs show the remnants of street life and cultural pockets across the five boroughs of New York City that have now been heavily gentrified. Classic bodegas, beauty sessions on the stoop and many striking portraits that show the vast variance in New Yorkers. The show closes June 20th so check it out before Saturday!
