Even as a child i questioned the significance of abandoned buildings and the stories they could tell by simply walking through them and seeing what is left, or more importantly, what isn’t. Due to years of neglect, these sites have typically become eyesores for those who pass by them everyday. what remains inside tells a different story altogether.
Whether it be industrial or institutional each doorway within is another opening to the past, behind each one a unique story is told. each stairwell leads to another chapter. I find as a photographer I am able to give these abandoned structures a second life of sorts, preserving them in a picture for others to see and interpret their history for themselves.
