Industrial Evolution

Bicha Gallery's second annual Architectural Views – a partner exhibiton of the London Design Festival 2010 – highlights recent location work of English photographer Robin Forster.

The show captures the startling scale and disturbing beauty of the industrial architecture, infrastructure and landscapes within the metal processing centres of Central Asia – the mighty powerhouse of the former Soviet Union.

These industrial sites have gone through an evolution from what was once a powerful communist state – itself created by a revolution. Set up as part of the communist machine to provide essential raw materials for the whole of the population of the USSR, one could argue they have changed little over the years. In fact, most of the technology dates back to the industrial revolution, the chemistry is the same regardless of who pushes the buttons.
