Riassunto: This is the third volume of photographs and text by Margaret Morton documenting the lives and living spaces of New York City's homeless population.
Over a ten-year period, Margaret Morton documented the inventive ways in which homeless people in New York City have created not only places to live but also communities that offer a sense of pride, place, and individuality.
Morton's camera reveals the ingenuity of builders who have constructed homes out of discarded materials such as warehouse pallets, junked auto parts, and demolition scrap. Her luminous photographs bring to light the determination and aesthetic sensibilities of all but forgotten people whose temporary encampments became permanent homes until they were demolished by the city. Seen together with compelling oral histories by the builders, Fragile Dwelling tells the universal story of a need for personal space and the resilience of the human spirit.
Margaret Morton, whose previous books include T he Tunnel and Transitory Gardens, is Professor of Art at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City.
Alan Trachtenberg, Neil Grey Professor of English and American Studies at Yale University, is the author of, among other books, Reading American Photographs: Image as History and From Mathew Brady to Walker Evans (Hill & Wang). He writes and lectures often on American literature, photography, and cultural history.
