Deserted Discoveries is an ongoing project documenting the remains of abandoned locations around the world. I capture the ravages of time that have befallen these spaces. The items left discarded at these locations are just as intriguing as the buildings themselves and to capture them frozen in time is a wonder to behold. Through my lens I document these locations and the haunting skeletons left behind. My photographs explore the connection between people and their possessions. Life is temporary and our desire for physical objects is far less meaningful than that of an emotional connection.

Deserted Discoveries is an ongoing project documenting the remains of abandoned and forgotten locations around the world. I capture the ravages of time that have befallen these mysterious spaces. Through my lens I document these locations and the haunting skeletons left behind. These locations offer a physical explanation to depression and anxiety as their exterior give a face internal struggles. The decay, the destruction, the abandonment from a childhood riddled with abuse, alcoholic and drug addicted parents and the early loss of a grandmother that tried desperately to save me from it all.
