For over 20 years, author and photographer Frank Jump has been documenting fading advertisements of New York City. Visible, but less often seen, these ads cling to brick facades like forgotten relics of a bygone era. For Jump, fading ads are metaphors for survival and outliving expected lifetimes, a topic that is very personal to him. Don’t miss this chance to reposition your perspective to these ads hidden-in-plain-sight!
Listen to a podcast of Jump’s conversation with Leonard Lopate from WNYC.
All of these tours will be featured as part of the 2012 OHNY Weekend, October 6 & 7, 2012. All listing details for the Weekend will go live on our website in late September. Please check back then for specific dates, times and information about advance reservations, if required.
