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
