I document vintage mural ads on building brickfaces in New York City. These images have become a metaphor for survival since like myself many of these ads have long outlived their expected life span. Although this project doesnt deal directly with HIVAIDS it is no accident Ive chosen to document such a transitory and evanescent subject. Of the hundreds of ads Ive photographed many have already been covered up vandalized or destroyed. But still many silently cling to the walls of buildings barely noticed by the rushing passersby.
