Photography from the project called ‘Abandoned?’ that explores the concept that nothing or anywhere is ever totally abandoned but in constant transformation, waiting for nature or someone to find it and give it a new life. wasabandoned.com
My passion for exploring abandoned places, capturing their hidden beauty, evocative capacity and discovering their stories is a passion shared by my partner Julia Clay. Together we travelled 40,000 km through 24 European countries, investigating and documenting abandoned places and the ways that they have been conserved, modified, recycled, occupied or forgotten. During this epic journey we made over 40 hours of video, 35 interviews, 40,000 photos and a baby! Our son Kai was born on 17th March 2011.
In 2013 we completed the feature length documentary film called ‘Abandoned?‘ that I wrote, filmed and directed. It has been shown on cinemas in Spain and 3 times on the Spanish TV ‘La 2’ (TVE, co-producer), with more than a million viewers already. wasabandoned.com/film
We did several exhibitions with photography of one or both of us and we are preparing the event ‘Abandoned? Exposed‘ that includes exhibitions, workshops, film screenings and debates.
