The Beauty of Decay
A “new” art form is rising in our popular culture, and I am a fan.
With the deteriorating infrastructure of American society, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the empty, abandoned, ruined buildings around us.
Whether urban or rural, photographers are taking advantage of the wealth to be found there.
As a writer, these photographs excite me because each image provides a tapestry of memories, possibilities and dreams. The richness of each shot leads our imaginations to create new worlds, characters and stories that can leave a lasting legacy.
As an introduction, here is a powerful video and an informative article for your consideration.
I want to share some of these links* with the caveat that I love the art described above. However, each photographer and webmaster is unique so I will not extend a blanket endorsement of everything you will see on these sites. As an aficionado of art, literature or music, we must use discretion at all times.
*I am a novice, and I chose the sites that I found that were clean enough to include on my page. I mean no disrespect to anyone left out. I appreciate the work so many have done in this field. Keep dreaming and sharing those dreams with each of us.
