Harry Dubin's staged Portraits

I came across a  great post on meta-filter today about a local NYC Grocer and an early owner of a television set, Harry Dubin. While researching a book on television, writer Jeff Kisseloff came across an article in the New Yorker from 1947 about the television habits of Mr. Dubin and his family. Jeff tracked down Harry and that is when Harry showed him his portfolio titled Dubin at work. Harry Dubin created a portfolio of himself assuming the role of various blue collar workers. This was a fabulous discovery and the work is not only a great historical document of old New York but also an important piece of socially concerned art. You can read more of the story here and visit the writer's blog here.
