Guatemalan photographer Jaime Permuth stops by the ICP Store this Friday, April 12, for a signing of his book Yonkeros.
Yonkeros documents “The Iron Triangle”: Willets Point, a small and often overlooked enclave of New York City that is home to junkyards and scrap metal businesses. Permuth’s beautiful black-and-white photographs highlight local workers and their tools and materials.
Permuth’s photographs have been shown at several venues in New York City, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Queens Museum of Art, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, The Museum of the City of New York, The Jewish Museum, El Museo del Barrio, and The Brooklyn Museum of Art. He has also exhibited internationally at the Museo Nacional de Arte Moderno in Guatemala, Casa del Lago in Mexico City, and the Israeli Parliament.
Permuth is a faculty member at the School of Visual Arts where he teaches in the Master of Professional Studies in Digital Photography program.
