Paul Raphaelson
• Art photographs and history of the recently demolished Brooklyn Domino Sugar Refinery
• Includes an essay on contemporary ruins, stories from Domino workers, and historical essays and pictures
• The last photos made before its 2014 demolition
Brooklyn’s Domino Sugar Refinery, once the largest in the world, shut down in 2004 after a long struggle.
Most New Yorkers know it only as an icon on the landscape, multiplied on T-shirts and skateboard graphics.
Paul Raphaelson, known internationally for his formally intricate urban landscape photographs, was given
access to every square foot of the refinery weeks before its demolition. Raphaelson spent weeks speakingwith
former Domino workers to hear first-hand the refinery’s more personal stories. He also assembled a world-
class teamof contributors: Pulitzer Prize–winning photography editor Stella Kramer, architectural historian
Matthew Postal, and art director Christopher Truch. The result is a beautiful, complex, thrilling mashup of
art, document, industrial history, and Brooklyn visual culture. Strap on your hard hat and headlamp, and
wander inside for a closer look.
