It’s In the Leaving. | Michael Massaia.

In The Menu, Visual Arts by Quiet Lunch

Michael Massaia‘s It’s In the Leaving is eerie but endearing photographic ode to one of New York City’s most recognizable technological relics, the pay phone. With 8 out of 10 New Yorkers owning a mobile phone, there aren’t many pay phones left in Gotham. Likely to be gone in the near future, these images capture the last gasps of a dying technology.
