Streit's Streit's Matzo FactoryThe Last Days in the Lower East Side In the spring of 2015, I carried my camera into the ancient Streit’s matzo factory on New York City’s Lower East Side. There I discovered the chief mechanic wrestling the failing machines into working order, witnessing first hand why the Streit family had reluctantly decided to build a brand new factory 26 miles up the Hudson River. I ended up spending five weeks in the Rube Goldberg plant, navigating six floors over four buildings and capturing the longtime workers and their decaying machines. Almost exactly 90 years after Aron Streit built the factory on Rivington Street, and soon after I took my final photo, the family abandoned the old plant forever. Prints from the Streit's series will be released in the winter of 2016-2017 as a limited edition museum-box portfolio with a custom letterpress introduction. The portfolio will be limited to five sets (and two artist proofs), each comprising twenty 16x20" prints. (Number 1 of 5 is now in the permanent collection of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.)
