Last night I took a few minutes between running around to flip through the National Geographic magazine for September 2007 and among the first pages, I happened across the “Photo Journal” section. This month features the works of Stephen Wilkes, who over the course of five years took amazing photographs of the ruins of historic buildings on Ellis Island. The article mentions his book, Ellis Island, Ghosts of Freedom, and also included a link to his website (www.ellisislandghosts.com). The website is really well done and I enjoyed a relaxying journey throu the photos that are available. The images are absolutely beautiful, and the website is well worth a look. I think I’ll be adding the book to my wish list too!
