Harvey Wang, Adam Purple and The Garden of Eden, Lower East Side, New York, 1985, urban gardening

One of the landmarks of the Lower East Side in the 1980s was Adam Purple’s Garden of Eden.  Adam Purple’s pioneering transformation of a rubble filled vacant lot into a tranquil oasis for meditation made him a hero of the urban gardening movement and there was much controversy when the City demolished his garden in 1986. This signed photograph is from a new edition of C-prints produced on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the garden’s destruction.
