NBI_Book_Cover-DUP“Photographer Christopher Payne specializes in the documentation of America’s vanishing architecture and industrial landscape. His recently published book, North Brother Island: The Last Unknown Place in New York City, explores an uninhabited island of ruins in the East River. Mr. Payne’s photographs invoke the former grandeur of the site over dierent seasons, capturing hints of buried streets and infrastructure now reclaimed by nature, while also offering a unique glimpse into a city’s future without people.”
