Ellis, Will. Abandoned NYC. Atglen: Schiffer, 2014.
This book is a collection of images from Ellis’s website of the same name. He goes around New York City photographing spaces that have been abandoned. This is an extremely fascinating topic considering how space is at such a premium in the city. It is difficult to believe that there are lots of empty spaces that exist without being reclaimed or developed.
Sartre, Jean-Paul. No Exit and Three Other Plays. New York: Vintage, 1989.
I must embarrassingly admit that I have never read Sartre before. This week I am covering a class for a colleague and they are reading No Exit, so I bought this book to help facilitate my teaching of it.
