The images in Coeur d'acier ("Heart of Steel") were made by Philippe Lopparelli (from the "Tendance Floue" collective) in Joeuf (eastern France) between 1990 and1992, when the blast furnaces and the structures of the steel industry - the pride and the source of wealth of the region since the 1880's - were being dismantled.
These Black & White images, with their thick grain and string contrast, display entangled steel and concrete, heaps of ruins and buildings and structures that are now rip open... These structures that were at the origin of so many constructions and building efforts are now destroyed, in an incredible chaos.
A really beautiful little book, with really string images.
