Closing Reception and Auction Bayou City Noir: The Photography of Marvin Zindler

Houston Metropolitan Research Center, Houston Public Library

Marvin Zindler was known in Houston as a flamboyant consumer affairs reporter and advocate. However, a lesser-known fact is that during the early 1950s, Zindler prowled Houston's streets as a newspaper photographer, covering crime and capturing Houstonians at their most vulnerable. Criminal suspects, robbery victims, socialites, wayward juveniles and even domestic violence victims were documented in detail.

This will be the last opportunity to view this exhibition of his work and to take home a framed piece of Houston history. All framed photographs are available for purchase by silent auction. Proceeds benefit Houston Arts and Media and the Museum of Printing History.
