On The Cover

For more than twenty-five years Helen M. Stummer has been photographing the lives and struggles of poor people in Newark, New Jersey, and on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. One winter day, she noticed ice coming from the ground-floor windows of a three-story tenement. The pipes in the building had burst, but a family was still living inside, the neighbors said. On the third floor Stummer found the family matriarch (pictured on this month’s cover) watching her grandchildren while the other adults were out looking for work. There was no heat in the building, so the children were crowded into the kitchen to keep warm by the gas jets of the stove. Stummer lives in Metuchen, New Jersey, and is the author of No Easy Walk: Newark, 1980-1993 (Temple University Press).
