German photographer Kai-Olaf Hesse initiated Topography of the Titanic; an extensive photographic survey of Queens Island sites related to the building of the RMS Titanic, in 2002. Commissioned by Belfast Exposed, Hesse recorded the historic marks, remaining buildings, and suggestive blanks left by rapid demolition and transformation, for this 2007 publication. To establish a visual line between the past and the present for the publication, Hesse photographed many of the key historic buildings and sites from the same viewpoints as the accompanying historic photographs documenting the modern shipbuilding project during the city's industrial height. Including essays by David Bate, John Stathatos and Ian Walker, and quotes from interviews conducted by Ruth Graham with former shipyard workers and members of the Ulster Titanic Society.
