VESUVIO

It took James and Karla Murray over eight years to make a photo series about little shops in New York. By now one third of these shops are closed. Their book is filled with photos of these bankrupt stores that represent nothing more than a vague memory. (Above VESUVIO BAKERY – Soho, 2004).
