In his book, Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Age,  Robert Burley documents the infrastructure that for nearly 100 years supported film photography.  Robert was granted access to shuddered film factories to photograph the massive machines and interior spaces where thousands of workers once made film in total darkness.  He visited Dwanye’s photo lab in Kansas: the last photo lab in the world to process Kodak’s iconic Kodachrome film. And, for the most dramatic pictures in the book, Robert photographed the demolitions of film manufacturing buildings at Kodak’s headquarters in Rochester New York.
