Modern Canadian Interiors

Queen St. West BIA — Cabinet Salon
577 Queen St W, 2nd Floor

Modern Canadian Interiors documents derelict manufacturing sites, churches, prisons, schools, domestic dwellings, and other decommissioned sites. The images are more than just indifferent snapshots of building facades and decay. The ravages of weather and neglect, discarded furniture, deserted workstations, and graffiti reveal the tragedy of abandonment. These beautiful photographs convey the essence of each location as it may have existed in the past and offer evocative portraits of a vanishing Canadian landscape.
