I’ve always had a huge fascination with abandoned places, especially buildings. There’s just something beautiful, yet calming and eerie about them all at the same time. It always makes me wonder what had gone on there before it was deserted, and how long it took for nature to completely take over. So back in college, I decided to start an abandoned photography series called Collected Remnants where I could convey the mystery and beauty of old and worn places of the past. These are the first images of said series that I had taken a few years ago.
- An old barn in Boyertown, Pennsylvania that is no longer there.
- An unused section of the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey that once held the likes of Ol’ Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra and Richard Kuklinski, a.k.a. “The Iceman” in its cells.
- A building that looked to be a swim club once that was on the road near Fricks Lock in Pennsylvania. I believe it was finally torn down a few years back.
- A place in Berks County, PA where a few old Reading Railroad trains were held. This was located near French Creek State Park.
