In an artistic representation of heroism and heart, the late photographer Jill Freedman lived among the firefighers in the Bronx and Harlem for more than a year in the 1970s as she chronicled their work. Now, her images are on display at The New York City Fire Museum.
The exhibition features a number of images contained in Freedman’s book, Firehouse, which was released in 1977 and garnered rave reviews highlighting their honesty and grit that captured the danger, tragedy, heroism and camaraderie of being a firefighter in New York City. The images in the exhibition include close-ups of the firefighters, action shots at the scene of a fire and more.
