From Sean Joyner’s article for Archinect:
What would a picture of architecture, devoid of people, automobiles, animals, and all of the other urban seasonings we experience each day look like? In his exhibition “New York Unseen,” on view at ClampArt through mid-November, the artist/photographer Marc Yankus, presents a fantastical response.
The artist’s ethereal portraiture of New York’s architecture taps into the hidden qualities we often miss, looking down at our smartphones, or rushing to catch the next bus. This exhibition highlights the elegance and novelty of the city’s architecture, encouraging viewers to look upon the structures with a fresh perspective. Through intricate post-production, Yankus has omitted all signs of human life, seeking to home in on what’s left behind and leaving a pensive capturing of New York’s architecture.
