Historic Preservation's Manhattan Polaroids project has picked up after a long winter hibernation and we will once again be exploring + experiencing the wide avenues and side alcoves of Manhattan with our restored 1973 SX-70 and 1986 Spectra AF instant cameras. With the stunning new Impossible Project color protection instant film, the architectural sky is truly the limit!
Manhattan Polaroids will be available in November 2013 as a downloadable architectural e-book by Historic Preservation Network's publishing imprint Cavӕdium Press. Other municipal titles are planned, including Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Newark, and Chicago.
Coming Summer 2013: "Charles Connick in New Jersey," an exclusive series of articles for the Charles J. Connick Stained Glass Foundation by architectural historian John Gomez. Mr. Gomez, who holds a Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, will feature obscure early-to-late Connick Studio windows in West Orange, Newark, Union City, Maplewood, Upper Montclair and other New Jersey municipalities and towns - as well as the firm's crowning commissions at Princeton University. Accessing Connick records at M.I.T., the Boston Public Library, and various parish archives, Mr. Gomez will, in written profiles and digital photographs, explore and share a lesser known corner of Connick's stained glass world.
