Connecticut-based photographer Rob Dobi is drawn to abandoned buildings by a suspended sense of mystery, preferring to know very little about each location before his visit. These modern American ruins tell stories, Dobi explains, and he strives to capture the chapters that others might leave out. Before wrapping shooting on any given building, he might visit numerous times, examining details that reveal themselves throughout different times of day, as the light sharpens his surroundings.
