Mark Power on Missing Buildings

Often, the best ideas are also the simplest. When I first saw Thom and Beth Atkinson’s pictures of missing buildings - and the wonderful map that accompanies them - I have to admit I felt a tad envious of their idea. For this is a true ‘photographic’ project, better made with still pictures than any other medium, and with a clearly defined, evocative subject matter. 
Sometimes, unfortunately, the best laid plans are failed by disappointing images, but not in this case. I’m very pleased to say that (envy apart!) Thom and Beth’s photographs, and the strategy they have employed, do perfect justice to the idea.
