A young photographer captures haunting images of abandoned places which are being reclaimed by the mother nature. The series of photographs, called Empty Spaces, reveals a world both bleak and fascinating.
Jonny Joo is a young American artist who is interested in photography since he was 16. While playing the video game Silent Hill, he had the idea to explore the surroundings of home. He discovered many abandoned places which proved to be an incredible source of inspiration for him.
Jonny asked himself why these structures were abandoned and being reclaimed by the mother nature. Why people had stopped looking after them. These issues have become a subject of his work and passion. “We exchange our imagination against the stressful day to day routine. We exchange our passion for something that we love for something that we do not love…. it’s sad.”
We were very impressed by the pictures of Jonny. These photographs are demonstrate the disturbing beauty of these abandoned places that we would want to explore with our own eyes. Would you like to explore these places?
