I knew I was going to be hook on Abandoned Photography with the first click of the shudder. Of course spending over a week with great friends scouring the countryside looking for places to shoot helps. I have to thank my friend Abby for being such an awesome host (and muse). She exposed me, no, threw me into the world of abandoned photography, adding yet another level of passion to the craft of making images. Over a year later, I am still processing images from that whirlwind of a trip, and loving every minute of it.
There is nothing like exploring an unknown (to yourself) location and photographing various states of disrepair and decay. There is a morbid kind of beauty in the peeled paint, rooms with graffiti and broken furniture, and if you’re lucky, the occasional deceased large rodent or two.
Here is the latest image from that trip to roll of the assembly line.
What type of photography gets you all fired up and inspired? Sound off and comment. I’d be interested to find out.
