Harsley arrived in New York at exactly the right moment. During the 60´s, 70´s and 80´s he was able to photograph many of the nation´s greats: from John Coltrane and Ray Charles to Jean-Michel Basquiat and Muhammed Ali. His 4th Street Photo Gallery is one of the hidden pearls in the history of photography. This humble space in the East Village was the social hub for a radical photographical movement among the city´s (black) youths. Photographers and artists such as Andres Serrano, David Hammons and Robert Frank had their first exhibitions in this gallery. In 1970 Harsley also founded ´Minority Photographers, Inc.´, an open platform for sharing knowledge about the craft of photography. Because Harsley had already been working as a press photographer, photographer for the army, colour technician for the New York Times and as a student and friend of Professor Lloyd E. Varden (1911-1970), his knowledge on the matter was invaluable. Even until this day he loves to share this knowledge with anyone who enters his gallery.
