About the Photographers:

Michael Palma Mir.

A lifelong and a second-generation resident of Hamilton Heights in Harlem. Mr. Palma Mir has been a community activist all his adult life and divides his time between work in the theater and photography as well as being an advocate for a better quality of life in West Harlem. Mr. Palma Mir is twice graduated from Columbia University with a BA in English and a Master of Fine Arts from the Hammerstein II Center. As a photographer, Mr. Palma Mir has documented the Latino arts scene in New York since the 1980’s and has curated and participated in various Upper Manhattan photo groups. Most notably, he co-curated and participated in “Vague Terrain: Manhattanville” at the Compton-Goethals Hall Art Gallery in City College, where Mr. Palma Mir spent a year chronicling the architecture, artifacts, and people of Manhattanville; a photographic testimonial during a period of ongoing and dramatic changes for the community. More recently he curated a photo exhibit named “Selfless Selfies” at the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance Gallery, a black & white exhibit by Upper Manhattan photographers, narrating stories about their changing communities. He conducts free photography workshops for the Fort Tryon Conservancy and for the Montefiore Park Neighborhood Association and is the resident staff photographer at the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art and Storytelling. Currently, Mr. Palma Mir is the founding Executive Director of the West Harlem Arts Alliance.

His work has been featured on Deadline, The Manhattan Times, Uptown Collective, NoMAA, Nuevayorkinos, and Remezcla.
