These photographs depict elements of Daniel Libeskind’s Imperial War Museum North at Salford Quays, Manchester; a disturbing monument which comprises three interlocking shards, representing air, earth and water. The museum has an intentionally disorientating construction; floors slope at odd angles whilst the upper reaches of the air shard are exposed to the elements with views through the metal grid floors to the earth far below. It is a building in a future tense enshrined with dire warnings from our past imperfect.
Great work here!!!
Many thanks – Libeskind’s buildings are a great inspiration.
The B&W photos make it all seem futuristic as well.
I agree – colour would be completely wrong for what is a fundamentally a very dark subject. Thanks for stopping by.
