About the Author

Mark Hage, long based in New York's SoHo neighborhood, has taught at Harvard, Yale, and Parsons on the narratives of structure and form from ancient times to the present; and spoke at the New Museum on the intersection of creative forces. His work has appeared in NOON, Lit Hub, and A Public Space, where he is a contributing editor.

Reviews

At first and perhaps out of discomfort, I walked by the shuttered stores thinking of them as surface, without seeking depth or further understanding. But with time, I started to look inside, lingered, and began to photograph for Capital.
--Mark Hage, Lit Hub, "The Private Lives of Shuttered Stores"

"Capital's images capture the vestiges of this neglect with an eye for demolition's compositional accidents. Hage's camera zooms in on walls stripped down to scarred and textured abstractions, outlets and wires bereft of purpose, and columns that stand sentry over emptiness."
--Louis Bury, Hyperallergic

Hage's own design sense is exquisite: walls of color or lines or blotches, depths of field extending into unlit edges, snaking wires and interior transom windows, all framed to locate the viewer as the sole observer, the watchperson, watching for the next moves of capital.
--Ron Slate, On the Seawall
