This is a series about the remnants of a factory Teinturie de l'Est et de l'Ouest ( see the old advert http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XwSDLdrZLOc/TmcSu732SZI/AAAAAAAAEus/aONw58sS6fo/s1600/TEO.jpg) which is located 500 meters from my parents flat. It has been prosperous when the hosiery was the main work in Troyes, but the decline arrived when the work has been transfered to low cost countries. This factory was about 25 000 square meters but is now waiting for a new life: buildings to live in.
You are very welcome :-) Fun to give a new life to these abandoned spots, search for details, find answers to what has happened ... or also not. Yes lost jobs but maybe one day this land will have a new purpose. Not so far where I live they turned old factory space into super fancy flats and also some office space. Where hundreds worked there is now a single architect or a graphic designer with not one single employee. On the other hand the digitalization needs IT folks a gogo. We will see. A great series with a lot of colorful graffiti. My absolute favorite is the main, so colorful, so rusty, so attractive. Favorite.
