Big Red Coalbreaker – Interior, Youngstown, Ohio, 2006
from the series Industrial Interior

In 2006 I visited Youngstown, Ohio to document what was left of its previously thriving steel industry. What I found when I got there, however, was that most of it had long since been demolished. One of the few giants that remained was the “Big Red” coalbreaker (nicknamed as such because of its colour). The inside was covered in about 3 inches of thick coal dust, and was pitch black. Not long after we visited this location, it too was demolished.
