Tales of Another Island Shipyard

This definitely relates to the previous post. As seen recently on Conscientious - Jörg Colberg's weblog about fine-art photography - we find this fascinating snapshot ("Topography of Titanic") of the work of German photographer Kai-Olaf Hesse: "an extensive photographic survey of Queen's Island sites related to the making of the Titanic; the historic marks, remaining buildings, and suggestive blanks left by rapid demolition and transformation." Sounds familiar, no?
The depth of this study - in to addition Hesse's images, there are articles, vintage photos, audio, education links - is amazing. Find out more at the "Belfast Exposed" source.
