Fisher Body 21
Detroit, Michigan, 2008
Where once parts for Buicks and Cadillacs were made for General Motors, the building has been condemned, cited as a toxic waste site. The installation was completed by artist Scott Hocking in 2008, a ziggurat composed of repurposed wooden bricks designed to absorb the weight of heavy machinery.

“Photographer Sean Hemmerle finds an elegiac sign of America's fading industrial might in the crumbling urban ruins of the Motor City”
—Time Magazine

Feroz Galerie is pleased to announce Sean Hemmerle: Solitary Structures, an exhibition of photographs presented simultaneously in the public spaces of Bonn and within our galerie space on Prinz-Albert Straße.
Sean Hemmerle photographs the everyday architecture in places of conflict and struggle, ranging from the Middle East to the Middle of America—he reveals the hidden signs of vitality and beauty found amidst the tensions. His work instantaneously captures moments of rise and decline; each impression balanced on the sharp edge of extinction.
For over ten years, Hemmerle has created distinctive pictures exposing the residual layers of life and living. Departing from the formal techniques employed in photographing architecture, he approaches each Solitary Structure with the direct language and intimacy of portrait photography. In multifaceted compositions Hemmerle extracts his subjects from their natural environments, drawing intense focus to the pure magnificent physicality of these man made constructions. His portraits of the romantic neo- gothic palaces assembled in the archetypal factory towns of the American Rust Belt manifest the richness of the American dream, his pictures call attention to the light and life within the ruptures in the modern minimalist concrete fortresses in the Middle East as they wrestle for peace, and he depicts the unforgiving figures of fear remaining from the gripping wars of European capitals that have over time quietly woven back into the fabric of the city.
Solitary Structures demonstrates Hemmerle’s athletic visual understanding of structure and place, each work is a visual argument for beauty, a display of time quietly unfolding and resonating with mystery.
Sean Hemmerle is a recipient of a 2013 Graham Foundation grant for architectural photography. His work is in major collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The International Center for Photography, New York and the Martin Margulies Collection. He is a regular contributor to Time, The New York Times and Metropolis magazines.
Select Projects include: Brutal Legacy: Paul Rudolph’s Orange County Government Center, The Graham Foundation (2013); Media Nodes, Columbia Journalism Review (2002-2011); The Remains of Detroit, Time Magazine (2008); The American Rust Belt, Time Magazine (2009); Walls, Photographer’s Companion, China (2006); Iraq: The Secret Collaborators, Time Magazine (2003); Afganistan: Postwar Correspondent, Metropolis magazine (2002); The Twin Towers, Metropolis (December 2001). Hemmerle (1966) lives and works in New York City.

“Photographer Sean Hemmerle finds an elegiac sign of America's fading industrial might in the crumbling urban ruins of the Motor City”
—Time Magazine

"Sean Hemmerle: Solitary Structures" ist eine Ausstellung von Photographien markanter Gebäuden und Strukturen, die auf Plakatwänden in der Stadt Bonn sowie in der Feroz Galerie zu sehen sind.

Die Arbeit "Solitary Structures" zeigt die Lebenskraft und verborgene Schönheit, die in ansonsten zerstörten und verfallenen Orten noch zu erkennen sind. Die Bilder sind in den langsam zugrunde gehenden amerikanischen Industriestädten, den staubigen Stadtlandschaften des Nahen Ostens und den Hauptstädten Europas entstanden. Sie zeigen würdevoll den Verfall, dem die Stukturen der Bauwerke im Laufe der Zeit unterliegen.
