The Disappearing Face of New York
Ten years ago, photographers James and Karla Murray began documenting the unique storefronts that define New York as a wonderfully diverse place to live. After a decade had passed, the pair went back to the same locations, only to sadly discover that many of the charming family-owned stores had been pushed out and replaced by large chains, banks, and generic businesses. The Murrays documented these rapid changes with side-by-side photographs compiled in a book entitled Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York.
Today died Max Mathews, considered the Father of modern Computer Music creation. Although he was not the first to generate sound with a computer, Mathews fathered generations of digital music tools. Also co-creator of Max/MSP music creation software that in fact was named after him. RIPF.
