Evanescent Cities, Hardback Book

Evanescent Cities Hardback


  • Information


Evanescent Cities is a photographic exploration of the neighborhoods of Long Island City, Queens and Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These neighborhoods have undergone a massive shift over the last few decades as New York City becomes more prosperous.

At the same time, the cities evolution away from industrial landscapes towards a newer, more sterile version of itself has sacrificed a certain amount of diversity not to mention charm.

In these depopulated landscapes photographer Patrick O'Hare seeks to document, and comment upon, the ever-shifting relationship between New York's neighborhoods and the people they contain.
