Past and present: NYC's changing streetscape

Ten years ago, James and Karla Murray set out photographing New York City's distinct and varied storefronts. The project was known as Storefront: The Disappearing Face of New York. With ten years passed they revisited the same locations and photographed them again, where over and over one-of-a-kind signage has, in fact, disappeared. Banks and fast food restaurants have sprung up in their place, while others decay behind bars and graffiti. It's an altogether fascinating look at a quickly changing urban environment.
