There is an inherent mystery in landscapes that have been forsaken by man. The crumbling house at the end of the road or the condemned local cinema complex downtown just begs to be explored. Photographers have been scrambling over “no trespassing” signs for decades and for our next Squarespace group show, we want to see your images of these abandoned spaces.
Will Ellis is our judge for this call, the Brookyln-based photographer a longtime expert in discovering forgotten landscapes and architecture. From haunting asylums to overgrown resorts, his website Abandoned NYC is an extensive catalogue of urban decay across all five boroughs and beyond.
