"125th: Time in Harlem" is a four-year collaborative effort by Isaac Diggs and Edward Hillel to document the changing landscape of 125th street in Harlem.

125th: Time in Harlem was conceived not as a political statement but as vehicle to invite discussion and investigate the role of Community in America today. Diggs and Hillel have trained their camera on Harlem's “paradox of place” during a time of profound transition; Harlem is confronting challenges of urban flux, gentrification, the loss of cultural memory and the preservation of community. The tension between the everyday reality of its streets - often contentious and always complex - and the cultural brand it has established in our collective imagination is inscribed in these Artists' large format photographs.
