This month, my photo series about old farms that are used for recreational purposes was published. The Nationaal Programma Herbestemming used the photos to illustrate several articles about the demographic decline in Holland. Check out their newsletter and website .
The Lower East Side in New York has changed dramatically since the 1980s. The neighborhood used to be a dangerous and dilapitated area. Nowadays it is the place to be for trendy, rich New Yorkers. Rivington street cuts through the LES, from fancy Soho to the housing projects at the East River. In this street one finds both the remnants of its rich history and the changes that the newcomers bring.
These photos are part of ‘L.E.S. Art’, a book in which I describe the role of artists in the gentrification process of the Lower East Side (NYC).
