Abandoned Places

60 Stories of Places Where Time Stopped

You’ve no doubt seen those viral photo-essays floating around social media: “The 30 Most Beautiful Abandoned Places in the World!” or something like that. Well, this book is the ultimate collection, manifested in physical form.

Early in 2015 I got an email from the book’s author. He had come across my blog while researching locations – it turned out that I’d already been to quite a few of the places he wanted to write about – and soon enough I was brought on as a location consultant.

I ended up making a range of contributions as the project evolved – from advising on the list of locations, through to giving the manuscript its final proofread and editing tweaks – so that by the end I felt a real, personal satisfaction at seeing the finished book go to print!

Abandoned Places also features a number of my own photographs; including shots of abandoned locations such as London’s Millennium Mills, the Sathorn Unique in Bangkok, Bulgaria’s Buzludzha Monument and China’s ‘Ghost City,’ Ordos.
