which I posted back in September.
I love finding these kinds of ads on buildings in cities, and looking at how they've melded with the current surroundings -- or not.
I wondered if anyone else out on the internets shared this interest. Silly me: there's a whole fantastic blog dedicated to preserving these on film.
Here's a look at some of what Frank H. Jump, an artist/teacher from Brooklyn, has archived on his site, Fading Art Blog.
Frank's Fading Ad Campaign began as a photographic project documenting vintage mural ads on building brickfaces in New York City.
As he describes it, "Fading Art Blog has since grown to become a collaboration with urban archaeologists around the country and from here in Brooklyn as well."
which now are from all over the world.
Frank's inspired me to be even more aware of what may be left behind on some of the great old buildings I love to photograph.
