From Erica Owen’s article discussing Marc Yankus’ exhibition “The Secret Lives of Buildings” for Travel + Leisure magazine:
There’s much more to cities than the people that occupy them. The buildings that pop up around certain populaces are just as unique as the faces that pass by each day. New York City is one of those incredibly rare places where you’ll find decades—centuries, even—of history hidden within the nooks and crannies of building facades.
Marc Yankus, a photographer of more than 30 years whose illustrations and collage work has been featured in the New York Times and past issues of Travel + Leisure, has debuted a series of photographs called “The Secret Lives of Buildings.” Yankus helps us all get to know some of the most famous (Flatiron Building) and forgotten (residential brownstones) structures in one of the world’s biggest metropolitan areas.
