The Brooklyn-based photographer captures isolated, desolate and graffiti clad structures that were once the prime locations for mobsters and prohibition criminals.

This prohibition photography series by Tod Seelie embodies its vintage inspiration and reveals a hidden and forgotten side of New York. The artist's series captivates its viewers and features images that capture remnants of the art deco era.
