Description of the book:
Katowice railway station constructed in 1972 was a high-standard building. Raw concrete constructions were at the time a symbol of modernity and prosperity of polish people’s republic. Only a decade later neglected building began to fall into ruins. Even 21 years of independent Poland didn’t help and the condition of the building continued to fall. Nobody felt responsible for it.

“Brutal” was selected one of the best photobooks of 2012 on
