The Vanishing City
As a society , we often disregard the old in chase of the new. Cities are built, torn down and then rise up again from the rubble. That old candy store you used to hang out in, where is it now? The old movie theater you spent endless hours in as as a teen with your friends ---gone replaced by malls and convenience stores.
So ---do you ever look around you and see what is vanishing from the city before your eyes today? Are you ignoring these icons of the past as they slowly disappear or are you grabbing your camera and capturing their final breaths?
In this Call for Entry we are looking for the remnants of a city life that is about to pass. Whether it be an old building, a condemned bridge, a forgotten subway car, an old service station, a marquee or billboard…
...it’s time to capture them before they disappear forever!
