About Eric Holubow:

Being a Chicagoan, I have always been attracted to the beauty of architecture. While some celebrate a structure’s construction, I am drawn to its deconstruction; when these industrial, commercial and residential buildings transition into ruins. It is at these moments when the energy needed to preserve extinguishes; when a building’s existence is no longer deemed viable or valuable. In these forgotten and overlooked places, I see not just loss, tragedy, or decay, but the chaos in which a new architect’s vision may be born.

Buildings too have a finite existence on earth, eventually succumbing to those forces affecting us all. But their disintegration need not be unattractive or disgraceful, hidden before demolition. Seeing these transitions, whether they are graceful or crude, remind us of our own mortality.

My goal is to capture these moments.
