anyone that knows me well will know i have a fascination with abandoned places, buildings, cities, parks, anything really. i find them incredibly beautiful, the fact that they used to be alive with the constant bustle of people and then for some reason, sometimes obvious, sometimes not so obvious, the people left, taking time with them, leaving these places to stand still forever. i recently came across the photography of james kerwin, a photographer from norwich, england, who shares my fascination with these places. take a look at these.
Once inside an abandoned structure there is no noise, no people shopping, commuting, driving or talking on their mobile devices; it is tranquil and peaceful
his passion for these abandoned places has taken him all over the place and he’s captured derelict asylums, deserted chateaus, former power plants, under water structures and even entire cities such as pripyat near chernobyl.
head over to his website here for more detailed information about all these incredible haunting images.
