The hull of an immense tanker broken open like an eggshell. A man descending into a dark trap of sparks and smoke. A crankshaft broken in two using only a chisel and a pair of sledgehammers. Circles within circles, ship following ship. In the demolition wards of Northern India we enter an enigma, a world at the edge of our own, where in an unending cycle the greatest of manmade titans are unpieced with the simple tools of hammer and flame.
