Fresh flowers, fake flowers, plastic toys, old pictures, and all sorts of items remain untouched for years and years on cemetery graves. How much can we know about the person buried under by just looking at these items? Have they been forgotten? Or are they still being missed?
These postcards are a visual collection of such objects, all taken at Brooklyn's Green-wood cemetery, where around 560'000 bodies are buried.
EMPTY STRUCTURES OF THE EAST HARLEM
On the ground-floor of 1773 Lexington Ave, located in Manhattan’s East Harlem, there is a bustling grocery store. But the windows above it have been carefully sealed-up, testifying to no one has lived there in decades. This is not a rare condition for some buildings in the neighborhood: landlords are often content to earn income from first-floor commercial tenants rather than deal with the trouble of tenants. So the apartments remain empty and devoid of life.
