Abandoned Places

The Aesthetic in Ugliness

Even as we dream of shiny new futures, many of us are captivated by images of crumbling modern buildings, mental institutions that have faded from use, amusement parks reclaimed by nature, houses that will never again serve as homes.

Abandoned buildings often makes interesting motives, they offer abundance of details to cover. Amit the sadness and decay are there stories to be told. Who lived here and why did they leave? Was it economic crisis, an escape, a sudden death without relatives?

Adding to the exploration and storytelling is there often an artistic element to decay. Rot and corrosion seems to hold picturesque and photographic aspects.
