Pt. I

The SouthPosted by Roy Jul 17, 2008 02:24PM
Well after moving the site I was forced to re-upload all the photo's from our Southern Sweden road trip. Anyway here they are again.


DAY 1 - The Zipper Factory

The Zipper Factory, constructed 1940, is a brick complex consisting of four building where each building has three stories plus a basement. The complex was split in two by a small rapid which they generated power from once upon a time. The color pallet was only strengthened by the peeling layers of paint on the walls and the rusting of metal. The whole factory gave a mystical feeling with it's large empty halls, broken window frames and dark corners. This was a superb start for our journey and we were gladly surprised by this vast structure.

DAY 2 - The Slaughter House

After a few random encounter stops along the way we arrived at day two's main attraction, once Sweden's largest slaughter house, now a looming cement labyrinth. Closed sometime in the 70's due to the worst out break of salmonella Sweden has had where approximately 9000 were affected which of about 100 died. Today it stands another monolithic brick ruin; cement pens, broken tiles and rusting slop buckets decorate it's many floors. Wandering through it's dark torture chambers with molding graffiti encrusted walls gave a sense that this place never was and never will be home to anyone.

I think the architectural/industrial photos along with the stories and backgrounds about the buildings would make a very cool tabletop book. Beautiful!
