American Assemblies, comprises two sets of photographic works that focus on Jersey Coast architecture. The title for the show comes from the purpose of the two projects, importantly, collecting and preserving beautiful and dying structures through still photographs. These places, quintessentially American in their design, are captured in a very straightforward, honest way and are presented in an undiluted fashion.
Billy Cress’ project visually tells the story of the development happening along the coast, where these beautiful mid-century structures that are slowly dying each year, seem to stick out among the plastic, modern homes. Mark Havens’ photos document the same beautiful but slowly dying architecture along the Jersey Coast, and add another dimension to the notions of time and place, notably, removing themselves from such contexts.
