Marcia Bricker Halperin
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: I have been photographing in a documentary style since the 1970s. After receiving an M.F.A. in photography from Brooklyn College I worked as a freelance photographer and instructor. I studied with Lisette Model at the New School and Walter Rosenblum at Brooklyn College. From 1978-1980 as a member of the documentary team of the CETA Artist's Project under the Cultural Council Foundation I worked on a project documenting the gentrification of the Hell's Kitchen/Clinton area of Manhattan. Over the years I have photographed cafeterias, documenting the demise of this American institution in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Miami and most especially focusing on the Dubrow's cafeterias of New York City. Another ongoing photo project has been about the celebratory days of Chol Hamoed which occur during the Succoth and Passover holidays when Hassidim engage in recreational activities, at Coney Island in particular. These portfolios have also led to documentary film-making projects in which I combine my vintage photographs and video footage to tell unique stories. My most recent images have been color photographs of Cuba taken in 2013.
