Last Monday we have started our new architectural photo project, – “The abandoned buildings of Toscana”. We would like to discover these not well known sides of Italy. The first place which we decided to shoot was the former electric generator for the old trams line of Florence. There are not more any trams in this city. That is why the generator is not in use at present moment. This construction is situated on the shore of the river Arno in the area Belariva and looks really abandoned.
All the images of our project will be shooted by two large-format cameras. First day of shooting was successful.
Then we spent two days in the dark room for the large-format films development.
We decided to scan the negatives instead of to print the contact sheets.
So, there are some of the images in my computer already and you can see them before and after the post production.
The map of abandoned buildings of Toscana is impressive. We are choosing the next object for photo shooting now.
