From the article by Editor Holly Stuart Hughes in “Our Picks” in PDN‘s “Photo of the Day”:

Even in the ever-changing city of New York, it’s possible to capture glimpses of the past: seeing the cornice on a Beaux-Arts building or noticing an eighteenth century doorway reminds us of the layers of history that make up the modern urban landscape.

Yankus said in his artist’s statement, “I have attempted to ‘rebuild New York’ through my own, imagined vision, in which the city’s historical buildings, so often taken for granted, exist as living presences.” A visitor leaving his exhibition at ClampArt, in the Chelsea area of New York City, may look at the neighborhood’s former factory buildings with new eyes.
