|Like many black and white photographers I'm drawn to empty buildings. Especially deserted industrial buildings. These buildings have a heavy and ominous presence about them.
Their sheer size and weight seem to pull at me. They are nearly always constructed of brick and steel. They housed thousands and thousands of long forgotten workers whose stories are lost forever. The products made in these bulidings are no longer needed or produced somewhere else.
The buildings sit idle today as they have for decades and decades. The work-floors are empty and silent, save for the occasional creaking of a door or the sound of the wind blowing through a broken window.
