I don’t know if it’s too much to say that photography is perhaps one of the few tools capable of arresting time, or at least for giving time a visual form and making it palpable within an image.

This particularity has been used by photographers almost from the very beginning of photography in the mid-19th century.

"Industrial Walls" is a project conceived with this aim in mind. It consists of photographs taken inside industrial buildings, many of which have been closed down as a result of the economic crisis, but within which many objects still remain. These objects have deteriorated with the passage of time, implacably stripping them of their original function.

The aim of these images is to convey impressions of transience, both in a general sense and also in the way in which a particular object once existed but remains no longer.
