Memories of Australia: Abandoned Buildings and Their Stories
Out of stock
How do we engage with places that once played a pivotal role in our communities? Memories of Australia explores this question by documenting abandoned buildings across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia. Witness how nature is leading a successful takeover of old convents, power plants, textile factories, skate parks, and houses that now sit idle, awaiting their fate. The photographs document the architecture and interiors of Australia's industrial past, often exposing scenes that invite curiosity about a social culture that has slowly faded away. With subjects ranging from the once important to the obscure, these haunting images show how the coastal areas are different from the harsh, dry interior, some of which has been declared uninhabitable. Backstories about the buildings often accompany these singular glimpses, leaving us to contemplate the architectural and cultural legacy of this mesmerizing landscape.
