These thermale baths were created to recover the ancient baths in a city in Italy. The grand spa was one of the first in Italy and Europe, encompassing elegance, a plenitude of therapies, water mineralization and it was a beautiful place. The city began to empty with the first bombings of World War II. Miraculously the baths were saved. In the 1970’s, The imminent reopening of the dancehall was stopped by a fire of unknown origin. It broke out in the party room of the Baths. The fire was put out after about six hours. Since then a black veil of neglect and lack of interest covers all of the great palace. Such great ingenuity was used to create this jewel of architectural engineering and such great indifference is why it is in it’s poor state of neglect to this day. Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm Giclee print, a premium quality paper, which is perfect for Gina Soden's brightly coloured and textured images. Fine Art Baryta paper has a similar foundation to that used in the past in traditional silver fibre prints. Its premium formulation allows for high image definition and 3-dimensional colour depth. The paper's unique glossy Baryta surface lends itself perfectly to saturated colour images. Edition of 10 with 2 A/P's.

At the heart of my photography is a preoccupation with abandoned structures and locations. Traveling widely to undisclosed sites throughout Europe, I explore the boundaries of beauty, decay, nostalgia and neglect. The genesis of each of my pieces is often the unique architectural character of each location, heightened by their painfully slow transformation after years of abandonment. Kate Bryan; 2012 "Rather than taking a documentary approach, Soden breathes a sense of life into the scenes, hinting at narrative with studied compositions. Characteristically each image has a distinctly painterly aesthetic, side stepping the tendency that photography has for observational and distanced looking. Soden’s approach is lyrical and directs the viewer to explore the concepts of time and memory. The compositions feature derelict asylums, long since closed schools, ex-military compounds and famous city power stations in various stages of decay. The results are striking and poignant, at once both edgy in their contemporary aesthetic and nostalgic in their ruinous beauty. The work is underscored by the potential controversy of gaining unlicensed access to the out of bounds areas. Every image is a product of a journey, referring both to the physical demands of gaining entry and to the passing of time which is evident in the abandoned locations. Like the Romantic poets before her, Soden offers room to reflect on more romantic notions of beauty and a sense of calmness despite collapse and structural devastation"
