Time and Space on the Lower East Side--1980/2010--a visual exploration of one of America's most important and historic neighborhoods.
87 backers pledged $11,342 to help bring this project to life.

Goal reached!

Posted by Brian Rose (Creator)

Today, I reached 100% of my funding goal for Time and Space on the Lower East Side. I am grateful to all of you who donated--all of you who value independent photo books, who love New York and the Lower East Side, and who are making this book possible.

The reality is that few established publishers are willing to take on projects like this. Especially in these economic times. We, artists and those who support the arts, have to step up and make things happen ourselves. The $10,000 raised is only a part of the total cost of making a book of this quality. So, any further donations over the remaining five days of the campaign will be greatly appreciated.

The production of Time and Space is well underway. The sequencing of the photos and the text are complete, and the graphic designer is fine tuning the layout. Suzanne Vega has contributed the books's forward--it's very cool--you'll enjoy it. The book will go to the printer in the next few weeks, and if all goes well, Time and Space will be out in the first part of 2012. 

Thank you and hope to see lots of you when the book is launched!

      This will be a beautiful book, and your contribution is, in a very direct way, making it possible. Thank you.

      I was intrigued by your project and offered funding under the rubric "encouraging imaginative artists." I frankly assumed I would never have to pay off, though I do not for a moment begrudge you the Grant portrait that I pledged and look forward most eagerly to seeing the finished project.

      I am surprised and impressed by the power of Kickstarter (and will be more cautious in my future commitments!), congratulate you on mounting a successful project, and wish godspeed to the guiding angels of this website.
