A set of images showing the demolition of JD's Nightclub and it's replacement, "The Point", a block of luxury apartments. I took many pictures documenting the whole process from start to completion. The work started in January 2004 and was completed in November 2005. Here are just a few photo's of the main stages.

A variety of cameras were used for this project, the earlier shots were taken on a Nikon 4300 digital compact camera. For the later ones I used a Canon EOS 300D.
