"A Vanishing New York," a solo exhibition of photographs by John Lazzaro, documents the last remaining historical abandoned buildings across New York State.
New York is riddled with forsaken buildings; each having fascinating histories ravaged by the exploits of modernization. Many of these now abandoned treasures once operated with the best intentions until something went horribly wrong along way. And, while most have fallen
subject to vandalism and neglect over the years, there are some that have yet to be touched by the modern world. These structures now represent the diverse history of New York before until they become inexorably destroyed by time.
John Lazzaro is a documentary filmmaker and documentary photographer with over 15 years of experience respectively. This is the first solo show with fotofoto gallery.
