America’s Most Endangered Historic Places 2012

It’s been a while since I updated, but wanted to share some great news! Ellis Island’s south side hospitals were recently chosen by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of the most endangered historic places in 2012. They asked me to go out and shoot the current state of the place, and I think I got some really telling photos. See the below links for more information (and more of my photos)!

Living in New York City, I’ve been fascinated by the remnants of the 1964 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens. While the Unisphere is obviously the main attraction, I’d always been more interested in the decaying New York State Pavilion, which I only recently learned was also called the Tent of Tomorrow. The entire retro, yet futuristic feel of the World’s Fairs have always appealed to me.  As one friend so aptly put it, they were filled with a naive optimism, in a time where countries were racing to be the first into space, and where structures almost looked more like a mix between 1930s art deco mixed with some vague science fiction ideas of what the future may be. In fact I’ve found reference to the style of the structure being Futurist.

Abandoned Lighthouse

I recently took a several week exploring expedition to the Southern Hemisphere, and enjoyed a lot of night shooting, particularly with the mass of clustered stars only visible far south. I’ll be updating more regularly now that I’m back.
