Barb Choit, "Fade Diary"

Choit freshens the genre of New York street photography by training her lens on various posters, advertisements and maps, fading in the windows of beauty salons, barbershops and travel agencies. The focus here isn't so much on the city itself, caught in reflected glimpses on glass, but rather on the ravages of time on the photomechanically reproduced image, particularly the way sunlight drains out all the color, save a ghostly pall of cyan.
