Program Description

Event Details

New York is filled with forsaken buildings, each ravaged by the exploits of modernization, each having fascinating histories. Photographer and author John Lazzaro traveled the state, capturing what’s left of such places before they are inevitably swept away by time. These abandoned hospitals, schools, churches, railways, and estates offer us a view into a past rapidly dissolving before it disappears completely. This presentation will include a look at the author-artist's approach to photography, inspiration for the book, and an education and thought-provoking history of many of the sites visited and photographed for the book.
