Greg Wayn at Amcor

Amcor-05

Greg Wayn has been photographing the Amcor demolition site, a subject made to order for his talents.

Amcor, the former paper mills next to the Yarra river, is a enormous industrial site now being demolished to create another disappointing suburban development. In the meantime, Greg has been busy recording it on its way down. It looks like a war zone.

He has used Amcor as subject matter for different photographic approaches. What you see below are single images from separate projects, each made with a different technical or visual strategy. Click on the links below to see the complete series on his Photoworks blog.
