Summary "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. This unique aesthetic approach provides an engaging way of telling stories of change in our built environments--exploring the wonderful historical narratives that commemorate architecture in space and time. National in scope and including a surprising variety of building types, Apparitions comprises photographs from more than sixty cities across the U.S."--From publisher.
