The streets and tenements of the Lower East Side, as depicted in the iconic photographs of Jacob Riis, Berenice Abbott, and Helen Levitt, have long been home to immigrants from around the world. Today, newcomers push into established ethnic enclaves, and new construction threatens the historic streetscape. Students work in the field together and independently to document different geographical or thematic aspects of the neighborhood.

In the first session we will talk about what makes the Lower East Side important historically and why it remains a fascinating subject to photograph in the present. Please bring examples of your past work on a thumb drive ready to project as a slide show. Prints are also welcome. We will look at some of the books made by the class in previous years and talk about our goals for this class. It will be an intense, but exciting five weeks working together.
