The artist

Living in New York, Matt Lambros has produced a wonderful photographic testimonial of escheated American theatres. A graduate of the University of Boston in digital imagery and photojournalism, he has always been interested in architectural remains. At the age of 5, when he was living in the Dutchess County in New York state, he already visited old barns in his grandmother's company, to play detective. His attraction has remained and, for the past ten years, Matt Lambros has criss-crossed the United States in search of places of entertainment in decline: once the sites of social celebrations, now abandoned and deserted. He also invests in their rehabilitation by donating a number of images to help the organisations that strive to restore them, such as the Massachusetts International Arts Festival, which was able to buy back the Victory Theatre in 2009 that had been closed to the public for over twenty years. Matt Lambros' documentary work was published in The New York Times and enjoys international visibility.  ... See more See less

The architecture and history of these theaters fascinate me, and I hope my photographs will inspire someone to preserve at least one of these spaces.

MATT LAMBROS

About the artwork

Matt Lambros has an artistic approach that constitutes both exploration and documentation. He criss-crossed the United States for several years in search of derelict sites and photographed around forty of them. This image belongs to the "After the Final Curtain" series, a very vast project by the photographer, which reveals the history and architecture of these remains of the 20's and 30's. This site is Loew's Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York state. The artist seeks not only to capture its splendour, whose historical and cultural imprint is very strong, but also to draw attention to this forgotten venue, brimming with nostalgia. The play of light restores life to the place, the light awakens the architecture: plunging into the empty spaces and infusing the decor with new humanity. Once major sites of social celebrations, now abandoned and deserted, the theatres and cinemas seen by Matt Lambros waver between past and present, between splendour and decadence.
