Carl Weese is probably known to you through his blogs Working Pictures and WPII: Pictures in Public. Those who have visited his website for sure have seen his series about the derelict and decaying drive-in movie theaters. From a European point of view, drive-in movie theaters seem to an inseparable part of American culture and cult. To see them falling prey to a more and more individualistic lifestyle and getting “eaten up” by corrosion and decay evokes melancholic feelings. Having captured singular moments of beauty in this disintegration or sometimes re-integration certainly is commendable

This series today is featured in the New York Times “Lens Blog”. I hope it finds a wide readership. Congratulations, Carl!
