I started working on the series “It’s In The Leaving,” about the last remaining pay phones in NYC, in 2012. I felt the phones had an almost operatic/tragic stance to them. While almost none of these phones still function, there is subtle proof of life inside each one. They now seem to act as totems pointing to a less-knowing, less-connected, and perhaps better time.
