John Penley Photographs

John Penley is a photographer and political activist closely associated with the squatters' rights movement and housing protests of the 1980s and 1990s in New York City's Lower East Side. This vibrant collection from the New York University Library brings together dozens of his provocative photographs that document the demonstrations, protests, and other political actions in which he took part during these two decades. Throughout these images, interested parties will also see well-known artists and residents of the neighborhood such as Keith Haring, William Burroughs, and Allen Ginsburg. It's a great pastiche of social and urban history and will delight anyone with a love for New York and social movements. [KMG]
