Lower East and Upper West: a New Photobook of New York City Street Photography 1957-1968

Lower East and Upper West is an interesting new photobook containing the vintage street photography of Jonathan Brand capturing the street life in the Manhattan neighborhoods from 1957 through 1968.

A census taker and later an advertising copywriter, Brand chronicled life as he encountered it on his walks through the city. The book offers 104 striking images of New Yorkers engaged in everyday pursuits, from the Bowery to Riverside Park, juice stands and barbershops to Theatre in the Streets. With an introduction by Julia Dolan, The Minor White Curator of Photography at the Portland Art Museum, Oregon, this is the first book from a photographer who developed his art alongside many of the best-known in his discipline. Brand's photographs capture the energy, odd juxtapositions and intimate moments of life in mid-century New York City.

Grab the hardcover book containing 104 black and white photos for just $27 on Amazon.
