The series came very naturally to me because of the strong industrial nature of the cities I have lived in. I can remember that as a kid factories always intrigued me. Most of the areas were so immense, it took me entire nights of walking around, trying out and choosing the best angles for the structures. I often kept shooting until dawn until I got exactly what I wanted.—Branislav Kropilak
Factories is a series by Slovakian photographer Branislav Kropilak shot at night throughout Slovakia and Austria. Much of his work investigates the intimate relationship between humans and technology. He is inspired by industrial design, architecture and urbanism.
