Randy Hage crafts tiny versions of Manhattan's iconic storefronts. As these retro facade's hand-painted charm and local character fade from years of urban decay, they are replaced with generic cookie-cutter storefronts, often bearing corporate logos. Hage, a model and prop maker for the movie industry, has recreated many of these storefronts as miniatures (1/12" of original scale) in hopes to honor the memory of the old storefronts and preserve the soul of "vanishing New York."
