A Charleston native and skilled photographer, Jack Alterman is best known for his diverse portraits of Charlestonians. His newest exhibition, King Street – Faces of the 500 Block is currently being presented as part of Piccolo Spoleto in the previously closed-down Morris Sokol furniture store. The show is comprised of Alterman's portraits of the people who used to live in the 500 block area of Upper King St.
The show displays the different identities of Charleston, and also touches on the subject of gentrification. His past exhibition, East Siders Matter displays portraits of the people who live in the upper eastern area of the peninsula.
