The Family Imprint

DUMBO's own United Photo Industries unveiled The Family Imprint, their newest public art photography exhibit on Washington Street at Prospect. The new photo fence, presented by United Photo Industries, was revealed on Washington Street Friday, June 9 at 6pm. The Family Imprint is an intimate story by the documentary photographer Nancy Borowick.  As her parents underwent parallel treatment for stage-four cancer, Nancy tells a story about life and love more than cancer and death. In a sense, it reads and feels like a scrapbook, and is filled with decades of saved love letters, keepsakes and other clues about our lives, enriching the larger story which she has been photographing for a few years.

A public tour of the exhibition was given by Nancy, followed by drinks at the UPI gallery. The exhibition was located on the corner of Washington St. & Prospect St. and ran throughout the entire summer of 2017.

Presented in collaboration with the NYC Department of Transportation's Art Program.
