In her influential book New York Underground, Julia Solis explored the iconic landscape beneath Manhattan. In this new and equally inspired work, she takes on another kind of icon - crumbling theatres still standing throughout America and Europe. Using abandoned spaces as both subject and canvas, Solis details the theatres' stages and decorative elements as well as the eerie toll that age and entropy have taken on the once elegant surfaces. Where once-acclaimed performers such as the Marx Brothers, Mae West, Johnny Cash, and The Who thrilled audiences, Solis now assumes the perspective of the spectator witnessing a different kind of performance. Haunted by the memory of former glory, these locations are sensitively and beautifully captured at a new stage of life, one that takes place long after the final curtain has dropped.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Solis beautifully captures these [abandoned] spaces in her work, documenting the complexity inherent in falling apart." --The North Adams Transcript "Solis makes the viewer feel as though they are the last to witness what was once a grand and glorious stage." --The Business Insider "These photographs are haunting and lovely--an ode to what once was, but also an ode to what is." --Flavorwire "The lush, detailed photographs in Stages of Decay evoke Solis' sense of wonder and mystery about abandoned spaces." --The Huffington Post
