About Machines of Interest: The Selected Works of Stephen Mallon
Critically acclaimed photographer Stephen Mallon shares a collection of some of his most captivating, riveting, and thought-provoking pieces in his new exhibit at NMIH. Join us as we explore Machines of Interest and embark upon the journey of the industrial lifecycle and uncover the stories of their existence. The exhibit features over two dozen original prints from the artist’s collection spanning life on the rails to deconstruction in the recycling yard to tracing the elements of human-made machines. Stephen’s work will give you a look at industry like never before.

Stephen Mallon is well known for his series “Next Stop Atlantic,” featuring decommissioned NYC Subway cars as they are retired in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean as artificial reefs, as well as his series “Brace for Impact”, which chronicles the reclamation of the plane which was successfully land-ed in the waters of the Hudson river by Captain “Sully” Sullenburger. Mallon’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, and his work has been written about in many publications, including Nation-al Geographic, The New Yorker, New York Times, Vanity Fair, Wired, Stern, PetaPixel, Viral Forest, BuzzFeed, New York Magazine, The Huffington Post, and featured on CNN, CBS, MSNBC and NPR.
