I have been invited to show some pictures at the photo exhibition from Collectif Image. The decline of the iron and steel industry in this region is in the minds and in the newspapers of everybody. I will present some pictures that show the beauty of an industry in decay. Sadness? Beauty? Melancholy? Or simply an evidence that life is an illusion and a dream where the objects we perceive appear, are animated and disappear like the figures created by the mist early in the morning when the sun comes out?
