AT YOUR DOOR

THE DOORMEN OF NEW YORK CITY

An Exhibition of Photography by Alina Gozin'a

 

 

Three years in the making, AT YOUR DOOR presents El-Greco-inspired portraits of 13 doormen of New York, all immigrants from Eastern Europe, looking poised and regal.  This body of work captures a quintessential aspect of New York world-famous doorman culture and the personal stories of these very private men.

Like sentries, doormen have patrolled New York’s apartment buildings for some 150 years. They are the gatekeepers to Manhattan’s elite, often playing a role that’s midway between building security and therapist.
 

Rather than once again profiling the city’s rich and famous, Alina Gozin'a wanted to shine a light on these fascinating invisible characters who keep Manhattan turning.
