What They’re Saying

“The photographs of Paul Margolis remind us that even when we see a great deal, there’s a lot we don’t actually notice.  Despite often recording unfamiliar, occasionally exotic, people and places, Margolis is never a voyeur.  Rather, his work makes the viewer feel like an active participant in the photographer’s own visual adventures.”
— Tom Freudenheim, former art museum director and Assistant Secretary for Museums, Smithsonian Institution; currently an art critic for The Wall Street Journal

“I am indebted to photographer Paul Margolis who on our frequent walks captured contemporary images for the new edition of my book.   His masterful photos have opened my eyes to the delights and dilemmas of this evolving neighborhood.  His extraordinary generosity in giving so much of his time in scouting out the Lower East Side and helping me to catalogue the photos are very much appreciated.  I am proud to include his work in this volume with that of Jacob Riis, Alice Austen, Berenice Abbot, Alexander Alland and other outstanding photographers.”
— Joyce Mendelsohn, from the attribution to Paul Margolis in her book  “The Lower East Side Remembered and Revisited” (second edition, Columbia University Press, 2009)

“Margolis found quiet beauty and powerful imagery amid the abundant decay and buried memories. His photographs are an artistic study in urban archaeology.”
— Sandee Brawarsky, The Jewish Week, May, 2014
