Ghost Town: While St. Louis Sleeps

Ghost Town: While St. Louis Sleeps Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While every city understandably goes to great lengths to promote a wholesome image of itself to encourage tourism and business, there is often a far more interesting world that lies beyond the brochure photos of stadiums and glass skyscrapers. Only a city’s residents can fully understand this reality.

Ghost Town is a collection of ninety color photographs taken by native St. Louis artist Eric Post. His book explores a unique aspect of an aging American city’s physical landscape and the quiet, haunting beauty of its vacant streets at night. Post’s images not only give a new perspective to bustling daytime locations—Steinberg Ice Rink; Forest Park racquetball courts; and the riverfront area—his images also reflect the layers of the city’s history by examining a landscape at rest. Post captures the desolate nocturnal grace of places in images that evoke a myriad of emotions, often contradictory.

Ghost Town illustrates the grandeur of what used to be one of America’s largest cities and offers a fresh perspective on locations sometimes taken for granted and considered commonplace.

About the Author

Eric Post is a native St. Louisan and media arts graduate of New York University. After several years post-graduate work in arts studies in California, he returned to his hometown to document the urban landscape with both wide angle and macro lens.
