History: Preserve or Neglect

History: Preserve or Neglect

As time goes by and society advances, where do you stand when it comes to preserving, restoring or replicating historical structures? How about cultural art and architecture? Are you willing to let them deteriorate and eventually fade away from existence and memory?

This 13 image portfolio aims to highlight the rapid deterioration of culture artifacts and structures. The Infrared spectrum was chosen deliberately for the real but not so real aesthetics and processed with the negative film color style to help with the “real or not” look.
