Well, depends on the demolition AND the photographer. Right? 😉

I got a panic-call from a woman at a number in a small community in the Southern part of the country, and since I am located on the West Coast, I thought maybe it was the wrong number. But no, panic and hurry, thecustomer, NKR Demolition Sweden,  needed someone to document a complicated demolition of a bridge for power-cables in a environmentally protected area. They wanted it reportage-style, and I don’t often do that kind of stuff, but what the heck; I had time to spare and it would probably be pretty relaxed, so I said yes. When I arrived at the scene later the same day, I understood why they wanted photographs. This was a complicated thing. Normally they would just have blasted the thing with dynamite or had a huge excavator to crush the thing into the stream, and then dig the rubble up and shit it away. Now the had to build a support-structure, rest the bridge on that and roll it off like a rail-cart out of concrete. PLUS: the bridge was too heavy for any crane big to fit in there to lift in one piece, so it had to be cut up. The put on a lorry and rolled off the premises. And this is what it looked like! Photos of slow, clean demolition. I think they turned out pretty nice! 🙂

This house was occupied just months before, until the woman living there died of old age. The current owner, her son, grew up there. You could feel and smell peoples lives in there, in the wallpaper, the left behind curtains and furniture. The dated and degraded interior holds a melancholic beauty to them. When you read this it’s all gone. The house has been sold to be torn down and the plot used for a new, much more luxurious villa. Only had time for a few fast snaps. And now, soon, no-one will remember and the photos might be the only proof there was ever anyone living there.

Did the puzzle ever get laid?

What secrets does that sofa-bed hold?

Fall comes late this year...

The last dinner has been served. Kitchen window.
