5.0 étoiles sur 5 Blindly, dumbly, avariciously stumbling into the future without regard for the past 26 août 2014
Par R. M. Peterson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a beautiful book of profound sadness. It documents not only the disintegration and death of many splendid buildings, but more depressingly, the withering away of civic pride, civic virtue, and a civic mission in the United States.

Between 1993 and 2005, Vincent Feldman went around Philadelphia taking extraordinary black-and-white photographs of once magnificent but now decaying public buildings -- police stations and firehouses, hospitals, schools and libraries, museums, churches and synagogues, post offices, theaters, and train stations. CITY ABANDONED contains almost one hundred of those photographs, printed one per page. They are superb. Feldman took them using a 4 x 5-inch view camera and (for the most part) Kodak Technical Pan Film. Feldman thereby achieves amazingly sharp structural and architectural detail. Most of the photographs have black borders around them left by the film holders. The borders contribute to the elegiac quality of the pictures, as does the fact that in all but three of the photographs there are no people.

Augmenting the photographs are three brief essays and a forty-page Appendix, in which Feldman provides background on each of the buildings that he photographed. We learn that some of the buildings have been demolished, others have been refurbished and recycled (though rarely restored), while yet others still stand in vacant decrepitude. In addition, Feldman recounts numerous instances in which it was not only age, economic vicissitudes, or changing neighborhoods that doomed the buildings of his photographs; rather, in many cases myopic (or non-existent) urban planning, corruption, avarice (i.e., unfettered free market capitalism), and total neglect were equally operative factors. Perusing this book hammers home that we as a society no longer care about our urban communities. Nor do we seriously care about our past. And, as Feldman asks, "What is the nature of a society that severs itself so severely from its past?" I fear that such a society has bleak prospects for the future.

I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia and I worked in the city over the span of several years. However, I have not seen much of the city in the past forty years. I was disturbed to see and learn what has happened to buildings that I once admired. Undoubtedly, CITY ABANDONED will mean more to those who are natives of Philadelphia or otherwise have a connection to the city. But the book should also be of interest to anyone who cares about America's cities as places where people can lead meaningful lives, as well as to anyone who appreciates excellent photography.

Kudos to Paul Dry Books for publishing this book. CITY ABANDONED is handsomely produced and intelligently organized. And, for its quality, it is reasonably priced.

This is without doubt one of the most beautifully constructed books of photographs that leap off of the page and into your consciousness on the aestethics of architecture and the need to preserve it. So much is to be learned and absorbed by eye, mind, heart in an effort to preserve what remains. I am so happy to have this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, technically perfect photography 11 octobre 2015

This is a beautiful book and the photography is excellent. Anyone with an interest in ruins or Philadelphia's architectural history will appreciate it. I am an architectural photographer and very picky about how people shoot buildings and the images in this book are technically perfect. Definitely an outstanding addition to the canon of books about abandoned buildings.

Beautiful book. Gives great perspective on the decay of civil institutions in Philly and can also be used as a practical guide for those of us who like to scope out abandoned and historical buildings in the city.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 'City Abandoned' by Vincent D. Feldman 31 mars 2014
Par Rob Lybeck - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Having followed Vincent Feldman's masterful photography and insightful knowledge of Philadelphia's architectural heritage,
this book was a 'must have' for myself and anyone with any interest in the past and future of this urban environment.
Filled with photographic artifacts of Philadelphia's richly built history, many of which are relegated to the images Mr. Feldman has bestowed upon us. Finely printed with an excellent preface and introduction.
