Hastings Pier

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?
