If you happen to be in New York City tonight and aren't trying to wedge yourself underneath your radiator, Scot Sothern is having a show at Daniel Cooney gallery in Chelsea. Scott is a regular contributor to this website and a longtime documenter of LA's seediest locales. He's spent the majority of his life lurking on the crusty fringes of society, and some of the images he captured in those fringes in the mid 80s to early 90s will be featured tonight in his first New York solo show. The 25 vintage prints in Lowlife: 1985 - 1991, are the only ones in existence.
According to the press release: "the images offer the viewer a potent look at disenfranchised Americans, usually existing under the radar and out of touch. Through Sothern we have a view into an authentic underground world where human life is expendable and for sale 'at the price of a Big Mac and a fix.'"
The show will be up through February 28.
