I have been seeing the reviews in the papers the past few weeks. "Clayton Patterson: The Lower East Side. Kinz, Tillou plus Feigen. 11am-6pm. Free. Patterson has spent the past two decades collecting portraits of everyone from politcians to junkies in his eclectic LES neighborhood. 529 West 20th Streets between 10th and 11th Aves". And I keep wanting to make it over to see Claytons art show. I can imagine his show rocks and that he probably has some cool photos in the show as he has been around the neighborhood The Lower East Side that is now called the East Village for marketing, gentrification and genocide purposes maybe, for seemingly forever, documenting the scene and characters of the neighborhood. I can imagine there may be photos of the squats, squatters, Thompkins Square Park, punk rockers, the homeless and maybe even junkies and everyone else in between as his photos are all over the place. He has the really cool gallery in the Lower East Side that rocks also. Long Live The Lower East Side.
