After the architecture



From MATTHEW CHRISTOPHER'S show "The Age of Consequences,'' at the Helen Day Art Center, in Stowe, Vt., through Nov. 23.

Mr. Christopher's  photos look at abandoned and often dilapidated spaces in America. These are  testimonials and historic markers  that question ''the path of this country by reminding the viewers of these decayed and rusted industries, churches and mental health facilities...''

He says that "This is my collection of the things I found in the aftermath, evidence of who we once were and what would become of us. Our era would become known as the 'The Age of Consequences,' and while we knew deep in our hearts that things were falling apart, there was a time in the beginning where we could still look the other way."
