Storefront: The Disappearing Faces of New York City

Another new book from Gingko Press is Storefront. The built environment that allows for the formation and development of street culture, from art to skating, is a constantly evolving landscape. While some streets may never change aesthetically, moods do. Tenants change. Shopkeepers move on. Photographers James and Karla Murray have diligently documented the streets of New York for years. They’re interested was sparked by grafitti, leading to two books Broken Windows and Buring New York. Storefronts, moves away from street art, to the look of the streets themselves. Awnings, signage, window display. The changing faces of city blocks. And, also, those that have remained stagnant for generations. Augmenting the photographs are interviews with store owners.
