Photojournalist Burroughs Lamar


Burroughs Lamar is lifetime resident of Harlem. He is currently working on a documentary on the lives of original residents of Harlem.Burroughs has always owned a camera and began to take it seriously in 2007. In 2008, a project sprang from the global phenomenon of gentrication that is having its effect on his native Harlem community—and his sensitivity to how it is has impacted individual lives, its culture and social cohesion. He focused on a span of five years (2008 to 2012, amassing over 50, 000 images) to document through still photographic images, and where possible, employed a voice recorder to capture personal narratives from interviews. Capturing the Harlem community as comprehensively as possible through events, activities, organizations, businesses, persons and the real life verve of this storied village.
