Robert Burley is creating a photographic record of
a rapidly disappearing manufacturing
infrastructure dedicated to the production and use
of photochemical materials. His series,
Disappearance of Darkness, includes the demolition
of photographic production plants around the
world. Join him for a lively discussion centered
on the notion that photography, as we have known
it, is passing into history.

For over 20 years, Burley’s photographs have
focused on the relationship between nature and
cities and architecture and the urban landscape.
His work has been extensively published, exhibited
and collected on an international level. Burley
teaches at Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts.
