Brian Cattelle is a photographer based in Delray Beach, FL.
Brian explains the work by saying, “I’ve been traveling the United States photographing creepy and abandoned locations all over. I’ve seen some wild things and been to some of the most insane abandoned places. For me it’s not just about capturing these images of solitude and decay. It’s about rejuvenating some of their past glory by injecting natural beauty. So how exactly am I doing this? By finding adventurous models crazy enough to follow me into these dark and forgotten structures, letting me take nude photos of them in the chaos and destruction. The thing is, in my images you don’t always see the nude model immediately, often times she’s hidden deep beneath the shadows and the damage. Once you look, once you really look into the heart of my work, you’ll see the women reveal themselves, and you’ll watch as the images bring these lost places back to life.”
