The Derelict (2015)

 

This project explores forgotten and discarded spaces.

By highlighting unwanted and unseen areas the photographs show that there is beauty and art in decay.

Art takes a physical material and alters its purpose.  These objects have outlived their purpose; they are already art before I take the photographs.

Nominating these images as art gives the object and space purpose again.

Spaces are defined by the purpose they are shaped for.  With their purpose removed these spaces are seen in new ways.
