We’re a bunch of nosy parkers the human race – we love snooping around where we’re not supposed to. Mostly we like to look at things that are different to what we’re used to – alien cultures, behind closed doors or just other people’s everyday lives. Which is why we absolutely love Petra Valdimarsdóttir’s wonderful shots of Chinese fish factories; they fulfil all of the above criteria (unless your day-to-day activities regularly involve vast piles of octopus legs).
Shot on location in several fish factories across China Factory Living focusses on the extraordinary interiors of industrial warehouses, packed full of stainless steel, bright white overalls and mountains of raw seafood. Petra was drawn to these unique spaces because of their unique colour schemes; the bright, sterile environments are broken up only by flashes of pastel shades. We’re not all that keen on raw squid usually, but in this case we’re more than willing to make an exception.
