Ghost Town: While St. Louis Sleeps

35.00

While every city understandably goes to great lengths to promote a wholesome image of itself to encourage tourism and business, there is often a far more interesting world that lies beyond the brochure photos of stadiums and glass skyscrapers. Only a city's residents can fully understand this reality. Ghost Town is a collection of ninety color photographs taken by native St. Louis artist Eric Post. His book explores a unique aspect of an aging American city s physical landscape and the quiet, haunting beauty of its vacant streets at night. Post s images not only give a new perspective to bustling daytime locations Steinberg Ice Rink; Forest Park racquetball courts; and the riverfront area his images also reflect the layers of the city s history by examining a landscape at rest. Post captures the desolate nocturnal grace of places in images that evoke myriad emotions, often contradictory. Hardcover, 11x8.5, 96 pages
