Coming this January on Final Friday (Now extended through the end of March)!

Forgotten Cincinnati has been extended through the end of March at Park+Vine and the Joseph William Home!


/
"Forgotten Cincinnati," an exhibit of photographs from abandoned and deserted locations around the Queen City opened at Park+Vine a year ago. This year for January's Final Friday, "Forgotten Cincinnati"returns with more photographs, new work and an added photographer. In addition to a display at Park+Vine, work will also be displayed at Atomic #10 and the Joseph Williams Home all in the heart of the city's Gateway Quarter. Event details and directions can be found here on facebook.

The exhibit features the work of Sherman Cahal, Zach Fein and myself that we've accumulated over the past few years exploring the city's abandoned locations.

Forgotten Cincinnati isn't the only thing going on during Final Friday. Many different businesses, galleries, bars and restaurants will all be open up and down Vine and Main streets and Central Parkway. Come hang out downtown for a good time.

  1. Ronny, This is Mrs. Niehaus from Badin .
    Heard about your "mission." I really enjoy seeing your photos. I too have a yearning to see the old stuff. In fact, I have been down in the subway twice....where you took your photo and then at the station under Central Parkway. My 3 older kids did a History Fair project on the subway. We learned so much!!!
    Enjoy what you are doing. Keep up the great work. I enjoy having Theresa in class this year.

  2. I'm really bummed I won't be around for this. You guys do tremendous work and your passion is clearly evident. Good luck with the show, and let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

  4. We can't wait to see your photos on the 29th. What do we have to do to get you to give us a tour of the Cincinnati Subways?

  6. Wish I could attend the show but Tampa, FL is a long drive? I graduated from Northern in '77 with a BA. The photography studio was in a barn at the Keene Complex. You're work is fantastic, great stuff.

  7. Hey Mike. Unfortunately Tampa is a bit of a long drive, but thanks for checking out the website. I really appreciate it.

    Sarah, sorry I didn't respond earlier. If you did come down, I hope you enjoyed the exhibit. Thanks for checking it out!

  8. abandoned locations tend to be the perfect spot o give a melancholic touch to the shots, and i f you add the black and gray effect, that is a massive effect.
