First time down at the pier for quite a while this weekend. Since the demilition contractor has removed all of the wreckage on superstructure I decided to venture underneath. In doing so I was very struck by the Graphic nature of the ruin it has now become.
This led me to think that there is some scope in taking some high contrast images (in the manner of Keld Helmer-Peterson). They portray the starkness of the structure’s plight, yet, by removing the texture of age, they also look like images of modern a structure under construction, leading one to speculate what could be as much as what has been.
Or maybe not?
