The Abattoir


I've been watching this community for a few months and I've finally decided to share some of my pics. These are from a project I did as part of my Fine Art degree course.

Sadly, I could not be given access to the kill floor for health and safety reasons, and the security guard could have gotten the sack for letting me wander around the outside, so I'm really grateful to him.
