Photos Of BSA 2021: #15: Essex Street Market False Acne

We’re celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next by thanking BSA Readers, Friends, and Family for your support in 2021. We have selected some of our favorite shots from the year by our Editor of Photography, Jaime Rojo, and are sharing a new one every day to celebrate all our good times together, our hope for the future, and our love for the street.

Aside from being a well-played piece on the Lower East Side this year, we admire how graffiti writer False’s graphic presentation contributes to the word salad of the street.

The brain tries to make a sentence out of this, or rather, a poem.

Stay Busy

Words of wisdom that make about as much sense as the debates and speeches this year by so-called leaders and talking heads. So much scatting, free-associating, so much stream-of-consciousness collectibles from your road trip through this life. It’s all music. It’s all dance. It’s all up to you.

BSA Images Of The Week: 05.23.21

Welcome to BSA Images of the Week, where we are keeping our minds expanded and eyes wide open as the transformation of society and its fabric is happening right before us. We’re living in a bubble, or on one – an everything bubble at the end of a boomer age that will pop. Institutions compromised, media compromised, social net torn, leaders purchased and adrift. Late spring romanticism buoys us, as does the removal of masks out doors and sometimes inside them. New York is back, but its not sure.

And Jerome Powell finally announced that the dollar is in the gallows – or will rather be once he has successfully inflated to its ultimate death. No, we have no advice – No one is listening anyway.

So here’s our weekly interview with the street, this time featuring: Aaron Hauck, Bastard Bot, Goog, Matt Siren, Mel, Mort Art, Neckface, Royce Bannon, Sac Sic, Samantha French, Stay Busy, Stikman, TNAW, and Winston Tseng.

This spot previously had a Banksy inspired “Stop Asian Hate” mural. The mural has now morphed into this. We aren’t sure if Adrian Wilson, the artist who made the original mural has anything to do with this new concept. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
