Collapse. Inside Kodak.

Collapse. (post asbestos!) Kodak Toronto, 2006. I rediscovered a forgotten sheet of macophot negatives of the Toronto Kodak Plant while cleaning my studio/office recently. The photos are from one of the few times we explored the plant during the day- a very disorienting experience and the whole time security was in hot pursuit. I believe this was one of the admin/storefront buildings – where we found a 400+lb 16mm projector in the trash!

Vintage Corktown, Toronto

Associated with the Trinity Church in Corktown, Toronto Ontario, the properties at 399-403 King Street East were known as The Francis Beale Buildings and were deemed, “rare surviving mid-19th century buildings in Corktown that display the simplicity, symmetry and modest materials and detailing identified with the Georgian style”. Sadly a few arsonists didn’t share the “rare” sentiment and with the added neglect and exposure to the elements, the labyrinth interior of the row-houses fell into complete disrepair.

The interiors were gutted and rebuilt and the facade of the The Francis Beale Buildings were restored in 2013.
