Photo Arts Club of Newmarket 2018 Events Calendar
February 19 Speaker: Mark Wolfson
Mark’s presentation “Urban Decay” will take us to a number of structures in various stages of decay and abandonment. He will talk about Ontario buildings that you may be familiar with, and show us some of the photo projects he has worked on in other locations. While a few of these buildings are no longer with us, many have been rebuilt and/or repurposed. Mark will give us a brief history of the properties he has photographed and an update of their current use or condition. Throughout the presentation Mark will show us how he photographs these remarkable links to our past and tell us a few stories of his adventures doing so.
