Hump Day Art: More to the Lower East Side Than Hipsters

From Jacob Riis' How the Other Half Lives to the recently renovated Eldridge Street Synagogue, there's plenty of documentation of Jewish life in the tenements of the Lower East Side at the turn of the 20th century. Thomas Holton, however, captures the tenements' present-day occupants in the series "The Lams of Ludlow Street" currently up at the Sasha Wolf Gallery. The photographs chronicle the lives of a Chinese couple who share a two room apartment with their three children, offering an intimate glimpse into the famous neighborhood's most recent history.
