Abandoned

Among the cobwebs and the shy light that streams through broken windows, I search for places punished by time. As industries change, buildings often get left behind. What happened, why are they no longer in use and what’s the story behind these places? This is my ongoing project and the albums below provide a glimpse into our forgotten past, providing an exact photographic recording of the buildings and how they got to their current state, often giving the feeling that time has stopped.

Some of the buildings documented below are the result of industrial changes, deceased families, maintenance costs, bushfires and financial hardship, I have documented these buildings in their raw state to preserve what remains. I love these old buildings and the way they deteriorate overtime, and the history of each place. If you have worked at any of these places I would love to hear from you, if you have any information or corrections on any of the descriptions, please contact me.
