Industrial Decay

In the former GDR the German re-unification process was accompanied by an unprecedented breakdown of heavy industry in developed countries. What was a blessing for the badly aggrieved environment, caused mass unemployment and mass emigration to the west. More than 25 years later remnants of this industrial decay are still present. The photos of this series were taken at an industrial combine consisting of an agrochemical plant, a lime kiln and a lime mine together with some associated guest houses. After its abandonment the chemical plant found a new dedication as a location for movie productions requiring an industrial end-of-time atmosphere.
