Photographer's Note

In the mining region Bergslagen temple ruins like this is a common sight. Big squares of hughe columns stands in geometrically perfect patterns in the most remote and surprising places.

But these temples have nothing to do with religion, they are old warehouses or industrial buildings from the mining industry and built one or two centuries back. The columns and sometimes some walls were built in masonry and the rest were built with timber. Today the timber structures are gone and the masonry stands alone like a Greek temple.

The material for the masonry is most often waste material from the mine being recycled. We have a lot of buildings in this region built in bricks made from the melted reject material from the metalurgy. I will show more of that later.

When I took picture spring was in its best green at this place in Gr鄚gshammar. A painter was also trying to make something out of his structure. You can see the painter sitting by the third column.
