Category Archives: Abandoned Photography

These are my Abandoned Photography articles. Follow me from the long-forgotten shores of the Salton Sea, the centuries old tribal conflicts of Easter Island to the post apocalyptic and radioactive Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine. Adventure and exploration are a big part of why I love taking these kind of photos, you never know quite what your next shot will be.

With Abandoned Photography I often find myself alone, in remote areas, witnessing things that most don’t get to see. I strive to capture the moment that unmistakably expresses the emotions I felt in that fleeting instant of time and space. Just for a minute, I want people to be removed from their daily lives through my photographs, and connect with me as I share the beauty of our stunning planet as we continue our journey around the sun and, in turn our galaxy and then on through the cosmos.

Pripyat Hospital, as one might imagine, was by far the creepiest part of Pripyat.

Bottomless lift shafts and stairwells that descended into pitch black also added to the eerie atmosphere.
