ABANDONED PLACES

There are many abandoned structures in Florida that are still standing, even if just barely. I can't really put into words yet what it feels like exploring these places, but I can say that there is this exciting jolt I get in my chest when I'm in the car driving in the Everglades with a map and GPS coordinates trying to find a run-down building, and then I spot it, vegetation nonchalantly growing around it; so obvious and yet so forgotten. I find out about most of them through blogs and other photographers. A lot of them have done photo shoots at these places, in fact.​

These photos were taken at Gator Land, Miami Marine Stadium, Everglades Memorial Hospital and a former work farm/jail out in the Everglades (coming in November 2020...and absolutely the most eerie place I've ever been on Earth).
