Chelsea Market will host the photography exhibition “The Streets of Chelsea” beginning September 9 from photographer and Chelsea local Leslie Fratkin. “The Streets of Chelsea” is both a documentation of the continuously evolving neighborhood captured during the COVID-19 pandemic and a series of portraits of Fratkin’s Chelsea neighbors. The collection, made up of 37 black-and-white images, reflect Fratkin’s drive to seek out people and places that are not posed or arranged. She welcomes the challenge of not being able to control all the variables and seeing what an element of chance brings to the final image.
