Angels as Architectural DetailsRight, Angels! represents the old, the intimate, the hidden sculptures that are disappearing as deterioration and age give way to progress and efficiency.This book serves as a photographic sketchbook and visual reference guide of a style and time long passed.These angels and cherubs have seen over a century of progress and change. Through the Depression and many wars, the good times and bad, they have remained in place. They appear to be waiting and watching, still as the stone, clay and metal from which they were made.For some, they come to life when no one is watching, helpful characters in a play enacted over a period of time far longer than our stay on this earth.These images of angels as architectural details were captured in Chicago and New York City.
