About

Abandonments can be found throughout our world. Some rest in the form of derelict factories, other times as forgotten homes dotting the countryside. While some may consider these relics of the past as eyesores that should be demolished, it is important to recognize that these ruins contain a deep and often complex history. As we document this history we attempt to uncover the intrinsic relationship between these forgotten buildings and the environment that surrounds them. How did they affect their environment and community during their operation? Why were they abandoned and what is their environmental impact now as they decay back into the earth?
