French photographer Pierre Folk has been working on his latest project, “By the Silent Line,” since 2011, documenting the remnants of the grand Parisian railway that was abandoned more than 80 years ago. The 160-year-old, 32 km long railway, called “The Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture,” encircled Paris during the Industrial Revolution and was used from 1852 to 1934. The land currently occupied by the vanishing railway is attracting the interest of developers and local officials, so Folk is trying to capture this historical monument before its sun sets.
