Exhibition and discussion of 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 aspect of the local personality 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.

Two roundtable discussions will follow the opening. The April 13 discussion, Remembering Marvin: Reflections on a Houston Icon, will be held at the Rice Media Center. The second roundtable on May 18, to be held at the museum, focuses on photography.
