Although his photos are largely devoid of human subjects, Doug Geraghty is able to imbue inanimate objects with a mournful, anthropomorphic loneliness through his skilled compositions. His images of abandoned buildings are as engaging as his pictures of a busy Grand Central Station, the latter pulsing with life and the former in the final throes of disrepair. Both symbolic and literal, these affecting prints depict modern life as a paradox of industrial advancement and stagnation.
Geraghty is at the start of his career, yet he produces the skillful, classic, prints of a traditional documentarian. With a formal education from New York's prestigious School of Visual Arts, and experience taking photographs since the age of twelve, this emerging artist is one to watch.
