Time & Space on the Lower East Side
A Presentation by Brian Rose
In 1980, Brian Rose, in collaboration with Ed Fausty, photographed the Lower East Side with a 4×5 view camera. While buildings crumbled and burned, artists and musicians came to explore and express the edgy quality of the place. After the wrenching events of 9/11, Mr. Rose was drawn back to New York and eventually decided to return to where he had begun—the Lower East Side. While keeping an eye on the 1980 photographs, he sought to rediscover the neighborhood with fresh eyes, with the perspective of time, change, and history. The result, Time and Space on the Lower East Side, which will be available for sale and signing, is a set of photographs that looks backward and forward, that posits the idea that places are not simply “then and now,” but exist in a continuum of decay and rebirth.
