Apparitions: Architecture that has Disappeared from our Cities

Images Publishing

T. John Hughes

  • Apparitions is a photography project about buildings that that have vanished from our cities. Ghosted pictures of these structures are combined with current photos of their former locations in single images, with informative text panels to outline the design aesthetics. This unique aesthetic approach provides an engaging way of telling stories of change in our built environments, exploring the a wonderful historical narrative that commemorates architecture in space and time, a way to showcase the preservation of memory. National in scope and including a variety of building types, Apparitions comprises photographs from more than sixty cities across the United States.
