Product Overview

As our retail environment is increasingly dominated by shopping malls and big-box stores, Silent Workplace pays homage to the abandoned general stores and small-town shops which did not survive. It also captures the dignity of defunct factories, mills, and other workplaces that are no more. Bower has focused his camera on businesses closed up for nearly a 100 years, as well as those that have ceased to be more recently. There are moving portraits of a leather tannery, furniture factories, an ancient projector in a former theater, banks, barber shops, root-beer stands, a dress factory?even an undertaker's shop. The book contains 186 stunning photographs by Hoosier photographer John Bower.
