Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

Archivist, artist, and designer (among many other things) Clayton Patterson has documented life on Manhattan’s Lower East Side since the mid-1980s. The Front Door Book presents images and recollections of the people that have, in Patterson’s words, formed “a summation of everything I have learned.” The photographs in the book were taken outside of 161 Essex Street (Patterson’s home and gallery space), through the years 1985-2002.
