Bruce Haley's portfolio Wreckage of Empire: Communist-era Industrial Sites
Visiting these sites is "like being dropped into some sort of alternate reality, or stumbling upon a long-forgotten sci-fi film set, or discovering that the Apocalypse has occurred while you cat-napped, and you missed it... Ahead lies an alien world of decaying technology that is at once terrible and darkly seductive" - Bruce Haley

Larry Fink: Social Graces Larry Fink: Social Graces
In his famed first monograph, here reprinted by powerHouse Books, "Larry Fink straddles the scenes in his characteristically clandestine manner.
