RT Unpublished Material DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 606595662 LA English T1 Camilo José Vergara photographs, A1 Vergara, Camilo J., Archive of Documentary Arts (Duke University), YR 1977 AB Collection of color prints from Vergara's 2009 National Building Museum exhibit "Storefront Churches," with photographs of urban churches, pastors, and murals from cities around the United States. This exhibit was part of a larger collection featured in Vergara's book, "How the Other Half Worships." Subjects include urban churches in cities throughout the United States, in particular New York City and its neighborhoods (such as Harlem, Brooklyn, and the Bronx), Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Gary, and Camden. Vergara's photographs vary in what part of each church is highlighted: some are simply the church's exterior, offering a glimpse of the neighborhood and condition of the building; other images are taken inside the church, whether it be an abandoned sanctuary or an active praise service. The collection also contains, to a lesser extent, photographs of religious and spiritually-inspired murals and artwork from different urban environments; cemeteries and outdoor worship spaces; and some portraits of different pastors and preachers, including street preachers. Most of the churches represented in the collection are Pentecostal, Baptist, or some other branch of Evangelical Protestant Christianity.
