TLD Presents: “Strangers,” by A. Jesse Jiryu Davis

Delancey Street - from "Strangers" by A. Jesse Jiryu Davis

If you’re a regular reader of The Lo-Down you’re probably familiar with the work of A. Jesse Jiryu Davis. From time-to-time, we feature his striking black-and-white photos depicting people on the streets of our Lower East Side neighborhood.

A few weeks ago, the LES BID invited Davis to show some of the photos he’s made on assignment for The Lo-Down. We’re thrilled to be sponsoring Jesse’s debut show, “Strangers,” which opens Thursday night, October 20th, at the LES Visitor Center.

Jesse, who lives in the neighborhood, has been a contributor since our debut in the spring of 2009. He trained at the International Center of Photography and has covered events, created editorial portraits and photographed landscapes for New York Magazine, The Village Voice, Time Out New York, Buddhadharma Magazine, Der Spiegel (among others).

We hope you’ll join us for the opening reception on the 20th, at the Visitor Center, 54 Orchard Street (6-9 p.m).  You can watch a slide show of Jesse’s LES photos here.
