Unseen America

Wednesday, October 08, 2003

The city is currently host to some unlikely pairings... Near the brash lights of Times Square, is a photography show on display in a union headquarters. The photographers are Chinese garment workers and low income Jewish retirees. They have few cultural overlaps except the experience of being immigrants and workers. That was until they were given cameras and shown how to use them - through a program called Unseen America .

WNYC's Kathleen Horan caught up with them on the Lower East Side.

The photography show is on display at The Martin Luther King Jr. Labor Center on W. 43rd street the show ends October 30th.
