Brian Rose

"Orchard st Lower east side" 1980 by Brian Rose

It's happened again. I've stumbled across a photographer who's work I've fallen in love with, and I haven't stopped looking at for the last couple of days. I can't remember how I came across him either. I should have known about him before, his work is important, and as good landscape/documentary work as I have seen. Brian Rose studied with Joel Meyerowitz and Larry Fink. His work in the 80's documented a Lower east side that during the 90's was to lose much of it's character, as can be seen when he re-photographed it between 2003/07.
In 1985 he turned his attention to photographing "The Iron Curtain" creating the most complete photographic document of this border, which has now been published as "The lost Border"
Much of Brian's work can be seen here: You see this is one of the reasons why the Internet is really really great, finding work like this...............
