FÁBRICA by Daniel Blaufuks

写真や映像を通して建築やインテリアに関するドキュメンタリー作品を制作するポルトガル人フォトグラファー、ダニエル・ブラウス(Daniel Blaufuks)の作品集。かつてヨーロッパで繊維産業が盛んだった頃に多く存在し、現在はそのほとんどが廃墟化しまった繊維工場を訪れる中で作者が見た風景や記憶を、当時の古い写真や文章をもとに構成されている。 

Fábrica by photographer Daniel Blaufuks, is a collection of images composed into an expanded scenery of memory, a walk through the abandoned spaces of one of the largest factories in Europe in an once flourishing industrial region, that never recovered from the loss of the textile market to the Chinese exports. Blaufuks worked the book and the film (which comes with this edition) as a documental piece, collecting different kinds of memories, crossing old photographs, manuscripts and objects with images of the present state of the building interiors and surroundings. The result is a reflection not only on the idea of a 'factory' in itself, most generic and abstract, but also about forgetting and abandonment, thus creating a significant memento about labor and the disappearance of the working class in Europe in the last century, which is one of the reasons for the present crisis in the region.
