The art of photography meets “dark” industrial sites

There are some places on earth that heavy industry or uncommon human activities transform the environment in such a way that it looks rather eerie or mysterious. There is a recent trend in artistic photography related to those landscapes. And this is interesting, because photographers actually cooperate with companies that harm the environment (in order to have their permission to take photos) but they practically send a very touching message about our planet.
