In the winter 1985, Brian Rose decided to explore the Meatpacking District with his 4x5 view camera.
Early in the morning, it was a scene of carnage as men grappled with meat carcasses hanging from hooks under metal awnings along the streets. At night, a different sort of meat market took place as prostitutes prowled the same streets, and leather clad men sought the anonymous doors of sex clubs.But during the daytime , the area was utterly abandoned.
Rose never printed his Meatpacking images.
In 2012 he pulled out the box of negatives, began scanning and he decided to re-photograph the Meatpacking District, repeating many of the 1985 views and making a number of new ones.
Metamorphosis: Meatpacking District 1985 + 2013: a book that tells the story of almost unprecedented urban transformation, from wasteland to the epicenter of art and fashion in the western hemisphere.
