Store Front by James and Karla Murray is a Heartbreaking Series

Originally shot 10 years ago, Store Front by James and Karla Murray captured "The Disappearing Face of New York," as stated in the subtitle of the photo series. Fast forward to today and the difference between then and now is both mind-boggling and gut-wrenching. Gone are the character mom-and-pop shops that once defined an area. They are replaced with big chain banks, retailers and other similar businesses.

The prophetic photography book is sadly proven right in the updated Store Front by James and Karla Murray series. Although the transformations are shocking, it can help people do one of at least two things: either accept the gentrification with graciousness or help the remaining small shops keep their doors open.
