Russell Brohier trained in traditional photographic and darkroom techniques and methods while attending the University of Toronto, School of Architecture in the early 1980s. In his photographs of abandon and neglected places Brohier captures "a beauty, a stillness, a timelessness in what many see as derelict and dirt. Forgotten and passed by, these edifices are a testament to the social past. In these capsules of brick and marble are encased the struggles of workers and industrialisation; the transformation of traditional ideologies and the stagnation of those institutions; where wealth and class are manifest and tangible."
