"The places Britain has blown up, or liberated, over 100 years or so," says Atkinson. "Initially, I photographed them unpainted. They’re white underneath so they look sort of ghostly. But while I was picking them up (they were loaned to me by Airfix), I was shown a set of painted display models, which I borrowed as well.
"In the end, I think there’s more to the painted models – this extra layer of ideas floating around about the creative and imaginative side of model making. It’s as though they are little effigies or voodoo dolls. The models are all images of destruction, so it sits strangely with the act of creation which made them."

Historical survey photos ca. 1989 of Dawson & Douglass Building, 294 State Street, New Haven, CT. For reasons of development, other buildings along the street have already been demolished and only this particular building is left standing. But what really is a building on the street? A piece of real-estate behind the facade? These photos look at “a street front” from every angle.

My brother only yesterday compared re-releasing a film in 3D to colourising a black & white film, but this is just too awesome.
