Even when it’s not as obvious as in this frame, there’s a “ruin porn” thread running through the 4CP gallery — spectral skylines, abandoned structures, empty streets, vacant windows. There are also plenty of beautiful places, so maybe enlarged process printing cuts two ways, toward vibrant, idealized beauty and toward staticky, post-apocalyptic desolation.
