"This series of color Ektachromes Ida Wyman made of East Harlem in 1947 was discovered in her archive only recently, and exist as the only color body of work from that period. Her photographs reveal the extraordinary within the urban landscape. Reflecting the related practices of documentary photography, photojournalism, and street photography, these images are a testament to Wymanâs abiding curiosity about the human condition and the complexity of human experience, both familiar and unfamiliar."
