Walking the Block
Photographer Jo Ann Santangelo’s series Walking the Block documents the close-knit LGBT community in one block of New York’s West Village. After finding herself walking past a bar called Chi Chiz one night, Santangelo discovered a world she didn’t know still existed, even in New York. For the next year, she came back almost nightly, photographing the regulars in and around the bar. Hundreds of photos later, she’s assembled the most striking into an exhibit that will be on display throughout June at B. Hollyman Gallery.
