Essence

Russell Brohier


Brohier’s images, devoid of the human figure, are full of humanity and individual stories. In decaying spaces we find beauty, stillness, and timelessness. Often ignored, these edifices are a testament to the social past. Encased in capsules of brick and marble is the process of industrialization and the workers’ struggles, the transformation of traditional ideologies, and the stagnation of those institutions where wealth and class are tangible.
