Photos by Lee Saloutos for Photolucida's Critical Mass 2009
Lee Saloutos photo series looks for the abandonment of the landscape by commercial, military, and industrial processes. Also for for this contrast between the quality of light and the nature of the space it is in. Serene light in the gas chamber observation room of a shut down prison, in the changing room at a long abandoned mine, or in the light coming through the high windows of a wrecked mill. The design and function of a space can be jarring, utilitarian, even brutal, yet the light in the space open and subtle and inviting. I like the way the light works and the industrial settings , the gas chamber one...one of my favorites.This is a YES also!
