Buffalo South: Photography Pop Up was held on Friday, April 20, 2018 at Liberty Seneca, 2221 Seneca Street.
Buffalo South directed the lenses of nine photographers toward the people, places, and things that represent the City of Buffalo south of the I-190 and east of Michigan Avenue. Jim Cielencki, Shannon Davis, Lindsay DeDario, Chris Hawley, Molly Jarboe, Christina Laing, David Torke, Tom Warner, and Gene Witkowski were the participating photographers.
Liberty Seneca is a former Liberty Bank branch designed in a Sullivanesque style and built in 1921, with interior architectural details to be publicly revealed for the first time in decades at the pop up. The building was recently purchased by Schneider Development, with plans for a historic rehabilitation.
“South Buffalo is often overlooked, but on April 20 will take center stage at Liberty Seneca,” says Chris Hawley, a co-organizer with roots in the neighborhood. “Places often hidden will be revealed by some of Buffalo’s best city documenters.”
