Grab your lunch and join photographer Leopoldo Peña as he presents his series Interlude on Broadway, which he describes as a document “about the early stage of the redevelopment project, which the city calls ‘Bringing Back Broadway. I wanted to create a visual register of everyday life and the subjects, which had been keeping Broadway economically functional but suddenly became unpractical and susceptible to the economic model being used to bring back Broadway. I was interested in creating a series of images not as a denunciation of governmental policy, but a series that would, when seen in hindsight, project an illustration of what determines one susceptible to economic renewal and social removal.”
