Shine Exhibit @ Photographs Do Not Bend

Wednesday, November 4 through November 14

The Shine exhibit at Photographs Do Not Bend (PDNB) offers a unique and interesting look at the art of a shoe shiners hustle. Shine, the first of PDNB’s fall exhibition’s features black and white vintage photos (taken mostly in NYC) of shoe shiners and shoe shine boxes that illustrate young, aggressive salesmen on their journey to success.

“Many stories of successful entrepreneurs started at a young age with the “start-up” shoe shine business. This narrative of a young man’s first plunge into commerce offers a nostalgic look into our own youthful dreams of making our own money.” – PDNB Gallery
