Atlanta, GA, Susan Berger

As an extension of Black History Month, dnj Gallery is providing a continuance in the form of Susan Berger’s works.

“In some cities the street runs through a park or is even a country lane, but most often the streets are in neighborhoods inhabited by those whose lives were affected most directly by Dr. King. Often his image, words and name are used as a reminder and encouragement to the residents. Like Walker Evans, she is drawn to the signs she finds on the buildings. Sometimes the street is in a neighborhood that has been transformed from an African-American community to a Hispanic community. The question arises: where is the best place to honor a man like King? Should the street run through a central park that is used by everyone, or should the street run through the neighborhood.” – Susan Berger


Evoking the landmarks and newsreels that define the civil rights movement, black and white photography has rarely been more appropriate.

Berger’s works will be exhibited to the public until April 9th, 2016.
