Abstract

The images in the series, Neglected Interiors, capture the remote interior spaces of abandoned industrial buildings. I focus on the aesthetic qualities of the room as there is wonder in the remnants and vacant structures. Anyone can view the exterior, however by entering the gated facility grounds, I can give glimpses into the industries left behind. I experience thrills by trespassing, uncovering decaying ruins in hazardous conditions. I travel through these spaces, reflecting on how they were once fully functioning and wonder about the building's former life.
