.. and so does Brian Rose ..
.. as I found out at his book signing in Clic gallery.
Brian, who originally comes from Virginia, is a photographer and musician.
In 1977 he moved to New York to attend art school, because like he said: New York is a mecca for artist. Then he began to photographed the Lower East Side of Manhattan and put his artwork in a book called Time and Space on the Lower East Side 1980 + 2010.
Last Wednesday the book was introduced to public in Clic Bookstore and Gallery where you could let Brian personally to sign it. Many interesting people came in and I imagined what it would be to have my book of great photos.
And because he is a musician aswell, he has friends like Suzanne Vega, who also wrote the foreword of Time and Space.
I asked him what he likes about New York: It´s a big centre of what is going on and different from other cities. I like how it goes from big to small pieces. Every blog is different. You have thousands parts and each is unique.
Please find out here what he thinks about this event.
