Today I have a nice hint for urban explorers or urbex enthusiasts who are fascinated by abandoned architecture:
Matt Lambros is a photographer based in New York City, urban explorer and runs the After The Final Curtain blog, a photographic documentation of the effects of years of neglect and decay in some of America’s greatest theaters. What first sounds like a time-consuming obsession is just a great way of preserving and presenting forgotten and lost cultural symbols!
Whether the Paramount Theatre in New Jersey, the RKO Hamilton Theatre in New York, Loew’s Kings Theatre in Brooklyn or lots of other big and small theaters, Matt saw them all and extended his photographic work with small notes about the history of each building. That makes it possible for us to get a wide impression of the theater history in the US…
In my eyes, it’s definitely a must to check out afterthefinalcurtain.net – it doesn’t matter whether you just like theaters, or if you’re also interested in urban exploration, you will love it!
