    Tony Monaco, United States

This image was taken at Sailors Snug Harbor, Staten Island, New York.

A review of Tony Monaco's latest dye image transfers will reveal a great deal about the vaguely macabre artist.

From abandoned buildings to forgotten cemeteries and city landscapes in small towns across America, each scene conveys a sense of peace and solitude commingling with the industrialized world. While at the same time, Tony's bold use of color, dynamic range and strong compositional elements convey the intense beauty and destruction the artist sees in the world around him. His photography invites the viewer on a journey to explore a world that co-exists with the hustle of everyday life
