LOST, Syracuse by Shane Lavalette, 2019
*RELEASING APRIL 2019


Interstate 81 cuts directly through the heart of Syracuse, New York. Built fifty years ago, the construction of I-81 displaced Syracuse's 15th Ward community and has affected the city's character over time. The concrete and metal structure is now in a state of disrepair, and the conversations surrounding the future of the viaduct are as contentious as the past. Through tender portraits and stark studies of the highway and its surrounding landscape, Shane Lavalette photographs with a quiet urgency that considers the implications of urban planning decisions, the voices those affected in the process, the economic and racial divides shaped by the inherent politics of architecture, and the search for connectedness and hope that is present nonetheless.

Shane Lavalette is an American photographer and the director of Light Work, a non-profit photography organization in Syracuse, New York. He holds a BFA from Tufts University in partnership with The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Lavalette’s photographs have been shown widely, including exhibitions at the High Museum of Art, Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Aperture Foundation, Montserrat College of Art, The Carpenter Center for Visual Arts at Harvard University, The Center for Photography at Woodstock, Kaunas Gallery, Le Château d’Eau, Fotostiftung Schweiz, Musée de l’Elysée, and Robert Morat Galerie, in addition to being held in private and public collections. His work has been featured by The New York Times, TIME, NPR, CNN, The Telegraph, Foam Magazine, Hotshoe, among other publications. He is the author of two monographs: One Sun, One Shadow, self-published in 2016, and Still (Noon), published by Edition Patrick Frey in 2018. Lavalette is represented by Robert Morat Galerie in Berlin and We Folk agency in London/New York.
