My friend Karen D’Amico, a London artist, sent me the link to Photology. It has wonderful photos of old cars, trucks, boats, other vintage stuff, along with flowers. The photos of vintage stuff remind me a bit of Walker Evans. The flowers seem like Man Ray doing a better job on Georgia O’Keefe images. Anyway they are enjoyable in their own right.
Karen also sent me a link to Abandoned Places by Henk van Rensbergen. It takes theme of abandoned images found in Photology and goes a lot further. The site says, “Old buildings, abandoned hospitals, industrial palaces overgrown with plants and trees, the remaining walls decorated with graffiti, smashed windows, rain dripping through the roof... These places have become hard to find, difficult (or illegal) to access, dangerous to explore ... great to spend the day !” He updates the site with new images. The most recent was of Château de Noisy, “a sort of Disneyland castle after 30 years of abandonment.”
Enjoy. You should also check out Karen's web site for her latest projects as well as the web site for her graphic design work. I wrote about them last weekend - see London Graphic Designer and Artist – Karen D’Amico.
