On view at Gitterman Gallery, New York, are penetrating portraits made at night on 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem. Khalik Allah’s harsh and surreal images provide a glimpse into an often ignored world of homelessness and drug addiction. Using only the available light from shop windows, street lights, or subway platforms, Allah photographs with a slow color film, a combination that produces images full of grain and texture, a visual shorthand for the roughness and intensity of life on the street.
