I had this big pile urban exploration photos from the last couple of years sitting around.
I figured I should do something with them... and a self-published photobook seemed like a good way to go. ABANDONED is the result... my first photobook. Inside are my favorite photos from my ten favorite sites in southwestern Ontario and upstate New York:
Don Valley Brick Works
Symes Road Waste Transfer Facility
Kodak Building Number 9
Bowmanville Camp 30
Photech Film Factory
Holley High School
Kohl’s Cycle Sales
Church of the Transfiguration
The book is 80 pages. Each location is preceded by a small verse or lyric to set the mood (which I'm sure will seem increasingly hokey as time goes by), and there's a paragraph about each location at the end of the book.
There is a $5 markup which I'll donate to Red Cross relief efforts for Japanese earthquake.
