“Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen was born out of an initial questioning about clothing and the importance of fashion in modern society. Clothes do so much more than just meet our physical needs. What we wear acts as a silent language, allowing us to convey who we are and want to be to the outside world.”
“Lawless found it relatively easy to sneak into most of the abandoned parks, but some proved more challenging. He had to climb up Beech Mountain in North Carolina to capture images of a creepy Wizard of Oz–themed park, complete with its own yellow brick road. There were occasional legal problems: Disney threatened to sue him for copyright infringement after he posted images online of the company’s old River Country park in Florida. (Skyhorse Publishing included them in the book anyway.) To make the decaying parks look even more ominous, he shot most of them either right before or after a rainstorm.”
