Street food found in NYC today offers the city’s workers and wanderers a wealth of edible choice; from pretzels and hot water hot dogs to authentic empanadas and tamales, popular sizzling halal stir fry to artisanal ice cream and gelato.
A group of us from the School at the International Center of Photography led by photographer and teacher Stephanie de Rouge have hit the streets with our cameras, shooting portraits of the street vendors who prepare and serve all these edibles to their clamoring customers every day. By this action, we want to celebrate the diversity, hard-working habits, social fragility and prominent role of the street vendors in the life of New York City.
Become a Group Leader by organizing an Inside Out Action in your community. Gather 50 or more participants that stand behind a message you are passionate about and paste your portraits in your community.
