  • As we enter a post-industrial society, the built environments created to encompass our actions and activities in the 19th and 20th centuries are going through a period of transition. Most of them are experiencing a process of slow disintegration, whether it be small primary industry towns struggling to find a purpose, soviet-era factories that bear witness to a brutalist period of industrialization, or the steady disintegration of an agricultural heritage forever adapting to creeping urbanization. Over the last 10 years, photographer Nic Lehoux has explored these themes in a series of photo essays spanning three continents and a large variety of sites. These photographic essays explore 12 different marginal environments. The photographic examination of these forlorn places seeks to ask questions about the increasing speed of change, the built environment as commodity, and the transitional post-industrial period we find ourselves in.

  • Nic Lehoux is a Canadian architectural photographer who works with architects that push the boundaries of design of the built environment. Nic is regularly commissioned to document significant buildings around the world with his unique eye, lighting and sense of composition. His images are frequently published in the international architectural press. His professional work puts a particular emphasis on incorporating people within tightly-composed architectural photographs. Nic is influenced by the concept of the “decisive moment” – popularized by Henry Cartier-Bresson – which he adapts to the rigors of architectural photography. His images therefore serve as a reflection on the interaction of people with the built environment.
