THE ZINC HOUSE
 



     
 




When you wander about with a camera in an area targeted for demolition, it is only natural that the residents treat you with suspicion or aggression. The best approach would be to explain your intentions. As it turned out in this case, all they wanted was for someone to listen to their grievances.

Story: Walk instead of twist
Many of the houses are made of patchwork material as neighbours who moved out took the walls and roof with them. A sort of weird scorched earth policy.

Instead of twisting the zoom barrel, walk closer and notice how the reflections change. Selective framing via a tight in-camera crop produced a more dramatic picture than a casual and aloof overview (left).
