Jean-Claude Gautrand shot a series of images of the demolition of the old market hall in Paris, 'les halles de Baltard' and title is L’Assassinat de Baltard. The drama of elegant nineteenth century steel construction subjected--the very height of Modernity in its time--subjected to the relenting power of modern explosives and the chiaroscuro in the billowing dust clouds combine to create an unmistakable 'Steampunk' vibe.
