Architectural photographer Brian Rose started documenting Lower East Side streetlife back in 1980, along with a buddy named Ed Fausty and a 4x5 view camera. He's paired those old photos with contemporary snapshots of the neighborhood, soon-to-be-published by Golden Section Publishing with a forward by none other than Suzanne Vega. Rose's Kickstarter campaign for the book Time and Space on the Lower East Side is wrapping up with five more days to contribute. In the meantime, Rose sent us a few preview images from the series, including a before-and-after shot of an empty lot-turned-community garden on East 5th between Avenues C and D.
