Tria Giovan made the photographs collected in the book 'Loisaida' between 1984 and 1990, when she moved to this neighborhood on New York's Lower East Side.You young documented the life of the neighborhood with a fresh and curious look that highlighted the character of melting pot that distinguished it.Since 1990 these photographs remained in a drawer until the artist found them during the pandemic and she began to give shape to the idea of publishing them.'Loisaida' is a time capsule, a glimpse into the culture and history of the 1980s Lower East Side Sean Corcoran, senior curator of prints and photography at the Museum of the City of New York, contributes an essay.
