Tonight at 6pm the documentary Captured, about photographer Clayton Patterson and the LES neighborhood, will be showing at NYU's Cantor Film Center. Patterson has seen things we'd never want to see, experienced the Lower East Side in ways most of us will never know, and interfered with people we'd never want to mess with, but he also manages to capture a truly insane New York from junkies to drag queens, hipsters to the homeless. The documentary focuses on the deterioration of Patterson's neighborhood, where he once found a story in every corner, to its contemporary homogenized state.
