South Street is a remarkable visual essay, collecting Barbara Mensch’s photographs of the lost world of Fulton Fish Market from 1979-1983. With lively commentary, Mensch documents the tight knit world of fishmongers and the market, which was, in the words of Phillip Lopate, a “last vestige of historic Gotham.” Join us as Barbara Mensch discusses her work, which includes numerous photographs that feature prominently in the Museum’s current exhibition.


Barbara Mensch has lived in the Seaport area since 1979. She holds a BFA degree from Hunter College. Her work has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions and countless group exhibitions, as well as in museums including MoMA and the Brooklyn Museum.
