Front Door Book von Clayton Paterson


Clayton Paterson hat sein neues Werk namens „Front Door Book“ released, um seine eigene Geschichte des kulturellen Hintergrunds von NYC zu erzählen. Hier ein Auszug aus dem Klappentext: „The front door represented two things for me: It was the Wall of Fame where I played host to many of the local graffiti writers and it was the background for many of the shots from the Hall of Fame The period represented is from 1985 to 2002. The vast majority of the photographs were of Hispanics who lived on the Lower East Side. The L.E.S. in the ’80s and into the ’90s was not the hip place it is today. For the most part, the photos were representative of people who lived in the section that outsiders considered dangerous and that was normally out of bounds for those who had no business being there.“
