One point in the not so distant past, Lower East Side was not known for its hipsters’ dive bars nor epicurean’s gathering place. One point in the not so distant past, Lower East Side was a den of criminals, of social rejects, of those down on their luck. From its gritty past to the happening present, a photographer was there to documented all – Clinton Patterson, the unofficial historian of this little neighborhood between SoHo and East River. To showcase his extensive portfolio over the past 30 years, ALIFE’s newest venture, ALIFE Presents, along with Kinz + Tillou Fine Art, curated Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured – Photographs, a photo retrospective on the his works and the rapid alterations Lower East Side underwent.
In addition, the exhibit will feature The Front Door Book, published by Aaron Bondaroff (A-Ron)’s O.H.W.O.W. and a collection of essays and Front Door portraits by Patterson. Also available are collectible t-shirts, accessories, and the Captured DVD. The Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured – Photographs Exhibition will start today with an artist reception at 7 pm, then be on display until November 8th.
