The purpose of this project is to explore the potential of creating new images around the topic of abandonment and dereliction. The set of black and white photographs show the bleakness of the landscape and the destructive effects of the weather on the exposed buildings. For the colour photographs I have focused on the idea of plants and nature reclaiming back their environment and have explored different sites until I found one that fitted this initial idea. Having researched the sites and seen photographs of how the buildings looked in their prime, it makes it more striking just how quickly nature has taken control again once humans have stepped away.
