Toronto. I have always been fascinated by photographs of architectural ruins. Robert Burley of Ryerson spoke to us on February, 2007. with slides of the abandoned buildings and equipment of the Kodak Canada campus. A few years later he produced a book on Kodak’s decline called “The Disappearance of Darkness — Photography at the End of the Analog Era.”.
I came across a number of images of various abandoned buildings in downtown Detroit, Michigan taken during the dark days of the last recession. long after many sites were abandoned.
Now Galerie GADCOLLECTION in Paris, France is featuring various size prints of architectural ruins as recorded by photographer Romain Veillon in an exhibition of Veillon’s work from the 9th to 15th of March, 2017.
