John Penley is a photographer and grassroots political activist associated with the squatters' rights movement and housing protests of the 1980s and 1990s in New York City's East Village and Lower East Side. He began photographing as part of an effort to document the demonstrations, protests, and other political actions in which he took part, and in the process became a photo-journalist. Hundreds of Penley’s photographs have appeared in publications ranging from neighborhood newspapers to publications such as the Village Voice and the Washington Post.  The John Penley Photographs Collection at New York University’s Tamiment Library
