In Capital by Mark Hage, an elegy to a disappearing city becomes an emotional homage to the anonymous labors that built it. Mark Hage reframes the story of gentrification, and in photographic portraits of shuttered retail spaces captures the hidden soul of the city. Exploring the accidental compositions that emerge in the built environment, he invites us to view an alternative to increasingly overmediated spaces in photographs of what is abandoned, altered, left behind, gutted. An elegy to a disappearing city becomes an emotional homage to the labors that built it.
