Harvey Silver’s photography exhibit at the EV Gallery is a time-capsule of America starting in the late 60’s during a time of unprecedented historical change. Silver’s work documents people and the times in a definitive and dramatic way.

It was an age of flagging innocence when the fabric of American society was being rended by social trauma and strife: war, racial unrest, assassinations. At the same time, though, the late 60s also brought an awakening to a new reality; an Aquarian dream may have been dying, but its spirit was evolving through art, particularly the golden music of youth.

Harvey Silver was there, capturing both memorable and forgotten NYC moments through the lens of his 35-milimeter Nikkomat camera. He brings his work to EV Gallery, 621 E. 11th St., in a solo show entitled Changin’ Times that opens Dec. 3 and runs through Jan. 14.

“The world was in upheaval. Everything was interesting — the counterculture, the music, the politics — I viewed everything as a potential photograph. Documenting it enhanced the experience of living through it,” Silver said
