An abandoned manor house, hidden away from the public gaze, still holds many secrets of the previous occupants. People who left so much behind, when they said goodbye to the house for the final time.
Here is a photographic journey into the heart of what was once someone's home, an intimate portrait of another era and of a remembered life.
All photographs black and white.
The preview shows but a few of the images in this book, there are many more within.
