Sean Galbraith is a photographer and urban planner in Toronto, Canada. With a background in urban design, Sean looks for patterns, lines, and forms that give structure to urban environments.

Urban decay and demolition by neglect is present in all urban settings. All buildings have a story, a history, a life, and a death. Industrial factories rust. Office buildings slowly crumble. Residential buildings are reclaimed by the elements. It is a rarity that these building evolutions witnessed by those outside their walls. Sean seeks to go where many have gone in the past, but few go today. To explore, embrace, and bring sight to these spaces and environments from which others avert their gaze.

To document that which once was kinetic, but now lies dormant and decaying; Even with man-made objects, death is a part of life and has its own beauty.

A typical print of Sean’s is large, rarely smaller than 24″×36″. Some are in the range of 40″×60″. This is the only way to show the detail and beauty of these amazing spaces. Prints are exclusively chromagenic photographic prints.
