PHOTO GALLERY -- Street Vendors / Graffiti Images

Buying and selling is a type of social interaction that is common on public streets all over the world, especially in large urban areas. The photo gallery below features photos of sidewalk vendors in New York City; the photos were taken by faculty member Kalyna Lesyna in the summer of 2007. For an excellent ethnographic study of the life of sidewalk book vendors in that city, see the book Sidewalk by sociologist Mitchell Duneier.

There is also a separate photo gallery of graffiti images.
