APPARITIONS: Architecture That Has Disappeared From Our Cities
T. John Hughes

February 20th to  Saturday, March 11th
Opening Reception: Friday March 3rd, 5:00 to 8:00

Having gotten an early boost from inclusion in past MOP shows at Redline, APPARITIONS, has grown into a published "coffee table" book of images of the ghosts of lost buildings of various kinds in 60 cities around the county.  These ghosts are superimposed on what exists in the same locations today, providing a unique and engaging take on  now-and-then photography.  Twenty-five prints from the book will be presented, in addition to videos  that create a whole new experience of the work, as well as explain certain details of it. This photography is easily enjoyed by the general public as well as those deeply involved in architecture and historic preservation. That is why it has been picked up by about 200 public and academic libraries around the world.

Seminar: Saturday , February 25. 10:00-noon. T. John will give a presentation describing the background, anecdotes and challenges of the project . There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions and answers.

All events above are free and open to the public.  Do not hesitate to give T. John a call when you plan to come by, and, if possible , he will meet you for a brief personal tour. 303-520-3556.

Signed books will be available on a limited basis at a very reasonable price during the run of the show.
