NYC UNPLUGGED
Photographer Randy Scott Slavin has taken some remarkable long exposure pictures of the luminescent trails left by passing cars. In his words:
New York City is always bright. Street lights, business marquees, light from apartments and car headlights merge to light every corner of the city streets, even on the darkest nights. It is the night after NYC was decimated by Hurricane Sandy, downtown NYC is in the midst of a power outage that has plunged it into complete darkness. I felt the call to hit the eerily dark streets and show New York as it is rarely seen. Trekking around with my tripod I was able to get the long exposures necessary to see in the dark.  - Randy Scott Slavin

Time and Space on the Lower East Side
After graduating from The Cooper Union in 1980 Brian Rose began recording the cultural landscape of the Lower East Side along with fellow photographer Ed Fausty. The images were exhibited in a show called “Gargoyles and Cherubs” at the Henry Street Settlement the next year, but were later forgotten—the negatives left in Rose’s archives. Thirty years later, he decided to revisit the theme. Rose brought his 4x5 view camera back to the LES in 2010, intent on rediscovering the neighborhood as it stands today. Time and Space on the Lower East Side is the fruit of this labor, an amalgamation of cityscapes of the neighborhood during two different time periods.




The book, which received funding through Kickstarter, has been meticulously laid out and beautifully arranged by Golden Section Publishers. A full preview and copies of “Time and Space on the Lower East Side” are available from Brian Rose’s website for $65.
