Recently I traveled through NE Pennsylvania on my way home from Boston. In Nicholson, PA near Scranton, I visited the Tunkhannock Creek Viaduct.

When completed more than 100 years ago (1915) it was the largest concrete structure in the world.

Defining “New Topographics”

•May 10, 2018 • 2 Comments

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I was exploring something called “The New Topgraphics” (NT) movement. I joined and am following the Facebook group based on that movement. Having viewed many images in this group, I am still working to understand what are the defining characteristics of this type of photography? Does any shot of a building or other man-made object fit into the framework? Or are we looking for more? What are the criteria that we should consider when evaluating our work?

The Sears Store in Martinsburg closed in 2013. Since then Martinsburg Mall has been mostly demolished and replaced with various “pad” stores.
