Simon Sugden, Chris Gaffney
In this collection of remarkable images, photographer Simon Sugden has captured the beauty in buildings in their second life of decay and dereliction. These buildings have become abandoned, no longer in use for their original purpose, but the echoes of their former life, whether as human habitation or workplaces, can be seen as the buildings gradually decay. The buildings range from Yorkshire mills, farmhouses and fairgrounds to religious buildings, asylums and factories. Some of these buildings are returning to nature, others are little touched by the changes, but all have a new kind of beauty.
Look through these photographs and you will quickly see the fascination of this unique portrayal of the afterlife of these abandoned buildings around Britain.
