Warren’s photography presents a poignant understanding of abjection and pathos. His inanimate subjects — abandoned cars, air vents, vacuum cleaners — reflect a humanist symbolism, while his formal portraiture is an indelible recording of pure elegiac order.
The heady East Village days of neo-pop have now faded into historical perspective. Tom Warren’s early photography serves as a reminder of the importance of archiving the temporary, as well as the uniqueness of both the individual and the moment.
From NYC take the Newark-bound PATH train to Journal Square. Taxis are available on Kennedy Boulevard, directly in front of the station. The ride to Abaton Garage takes less than five minutes and costs approximately $5. If you prefer to walk, simply stroll down Kennedy Boulevard about 3/4 of a mile, until you reach Gifford Avenue. Then turn right; 100 is in the middle of the block.
