Modern Canadian Interiors
A TLR Club Book
by The TLR Club (Alejandro 'Sandros' Valencia, Colin Savage, Kevin McBride, Martin Helmut Reis and Richelle Forsey)
For the last 4 years we have been documenting the interiors of manufacturing sites, prisons, churches, brown fields, vacant domestic dwellings and other decommissioned and abandoned buildings.
The images in this book are more than just snap-shots of building façades and destruction. They are panoramas of places that are, or once contained, an energy of industry and life that created communities around them. Each photo is more than a room, basement, toxic factory, or mountain of bricks; they are fragments of the Canadian landscape and our identity.
These are our Modern Canadian Interiors.
TLR Club (Twin Lens Reflex) is a group of photographers, photography enthusiasts, artists and urban explorers that formed in 2004 to shoot Toronto’s hidden spaces and sites. The work of this group has been featured in Canadian Newspapers, Vice Magazine and during exhibition in conjunction with the City of Toronto, U of T and the Contact Festival.
