Title : Modern Ruins - Portraits of Place in the Mid-Atlantic Region
Authors : Shaun O'Boyle
Publisher : Pennsylvania State University Press
Year : 2010
ISBN : 9780271036847
Language : English

Description :
Shaun O'Boyle has been photographing ruined landscapes and buildings, primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region, for more than twenty-five years. This collection of photographs represents some of his best work.
Modern Ruins is divided into four sections, each representing a type of site now abandoned—prisons and mental health institutions, steel production facilities, coal mining and processing facilities, and a weapons arsenal. These photographs are hauntingly beautiful; they are also instructive, both historically and culturally.
Modern Ruins begins with an introduction by architectural essayist Geoff Manaugh, who offers insight into why people are so drawn to ruins and what they might mean to us in a larger psychological sense.
