Back in 1984, photographer Daniel Root moved to the East Village in New York City and documented his new neighborhood in street photography. Thirty years later, Root has revisited the locations depicted in his photographs for a then and now photo series entitled “EV NY: 30 yrs and now.” Root discusses the project in this interview with Bedford + Bowery.
