Arlene Gottfried, Photographer, on Her New Book Bacalaitos & Fireworks

Arlene Gottfried

, a photographer who has shot for the

Voice

over many decades (most recently shooting our

cover story "Class Struggle"

earlier this year) has a new book out called

Bacalaitos & Fireworks

. With a forward by Benecio Del Toro, the book is a beautiful look at the

Loisaida/Nuyorican

culture of the Lower East Side in the 1970s. We caught up with Arlene in her studio to talk about her work in the above audio slide show. She'll be giving a

lecture at her book launch tonight

, Tuesday, August 2nd, from 7-9 PM, at the Powerhouse Arena, 37 Main Street in DUMBO.
