I find my fascination with derelict buildings curious. There is an initial excitement when exploring abandoned buildings but what then dawns on me is that these places where part of someone’s life and somewhere along the line the physical building itself have been left to rot, the physical place abandoned, its original purpose lost.
Sentimental meanings aside, these buildings take on new identities.
As the building breaks down the original ‘rules’ of the space cease to exist. Nature is allowed to behave normally, plant grown uninterrupted. I find that this break down of normal behaviour and rules invites us to behave in a new way and I explore this in photography.
