One Down, Two to Go (2014)

Farm at Southbury Training School — Southbury, Connecticut

One barn lies in ruins flanked on either side by structures which are not going to remain standing much longer. This ends our visit to the farm at Southbury Training School. Tomorrow we return to a place that I thought I might never revisit…Never say never.

  1. Hi, I really love your Abandoned Photography! And I have a question, to be exact, two questions: First: How do you find your objects? Are they just random finds or do you have another way of finding them? Second: I think that even abandoned buildings belong to someone. Do you get in contact with the owner and ask their permission?

    • Thank you, I’m glad you enjoy my work…Rarely am I the first one at a location, so the Internet is a great resource. Also, If you follow railroad tracks or rivers, you can usually find some type of abandoned place in any town or city – this is where Google satellite maps comes in handy. Lastly, I try to get permission but often the owners are nowhere to be found – the property being sold and resold, so yes, I am trespassing…but if I do my job correctly, nobody will even know I have been at a location: “take only pictures, leave only footprints” – I enter but do not break in.
