About the Author

Brian Rose
brosenyc New York, NY

Brian Rose is a photographer based in New York City. He graduated from Cooper Union in 1979, and shortly afterwards began photographing the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In 1985 he began photographing the former Iron Curtain and the Berlin Wall. That work has been published as the "Lost Border, The Landscape of the Iron Curtain."

Rose has continued to photograph Berlin with a focus on the former border zone, and his Blurb book "Berlin: In From the Cold" received an honorable mention in the Photography Book Now competition in 2009.

In 2012 Rose published Time and Space on the Lower East Side, which juxtaposes images of this historic neighborhood from 1980 and 2010. And in 2014 he published Metamorphosis, Meatpacking District, 1985 + 2013, a companion to Time and Space, which looks at the profound changes to that neighborhood and the city in general.

Rose's photographs have been collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art.

Great book. I already have a copy of Lost Border (which is a marvellous idea skillfully executed) and this is an excellent companion. If you like this, you have to get a copy, if you can find one.

I really like the empty feel of your photos. It's sparce but there's hope too. I love looking through other people's eyes. You're able to capture things on an emotional level with out having to do black and white. Great job.
