In Newsstand, a sphinx-like figure, surrounded by the clutter, practically blends in with his inventory. For Xiomáro, who was described in a recent PBS segment as “a historian through the lens,” Newsstand is a good example of its connection with his National Park photography of Weir Farm, George Washington’s headquarters, and other iconic sites. 

“Through my  street photography, I am artistically documenting what I like to refer to as ‘future history,’” he explains.  “With more people getting their information online, today’s newsstands carry few papers and magazines and, as seen in the photograph, are selling mostly soft drinks, snacks, and candy.  As a result, only 276 newsstands remain in Manhattan from the 1,500 in their 1950s heyday.  These once-familiar sites are anachronisms that may eventually disappear altogether.”
