After working on the Telescope Houses of Buffalo, New York for the last three years, I happily showed the series in Buffalo for the first time last weekend at Dennis Maher’s The Fargo House gallery. When I wasn’t at the gallery, I continued shooting the project and supplemented earlier photographs of the city with new images of neighborhood stores and Silo City. Photographs of the installation and several new images are below.
For more information about the Telescope Houses of Buffalo, New York, check out my recent interview in The Public conducted by University at Buffalo architecture professor Gregory Delaney and a ArchDaily/Satellite magazine feature on the series.

The major disappointment of the trip was the demolition of a former synagogue that had been converted into a church. The above sequence is from 2012, 2014 and my recent visit.
Silo City was compelling as ever — this time with original plans, thanks to Isabella Crowley.
I spent last week in Detroit attending the Society of Architectural Historians‘ annual meeting, where I also had a few opportunities to continue working on my Detroit project. Selections from that work are below, followed by a few traditional architectural photographs.

I recently spent a few days in Dallas, Texas and a half day in Tushka, Oklahoma, which is steadily rebuilding after being struck by a tornado in April. The tornado clean up provided a clear focus to my southern Oklahoma images, while my Dallas images were primarily trained on its near southern and western sides of the city. A selection of my images from the region is below.
As always, you can see additional images from Dallas and Tushka and its surroundings on flickr.
Below are a few of my favorite photographs from my recent trip to the Pittsburgh area, including a couple of images from the much publicized borough of Braddock. As always, you can see more images from the visit on flickr.
