Urban decay photography

by Cormac Scanlan

Through my urban decay photography, I look to capture the essence of the places I visits. Whether I am exploring abandoned buildings or capturing decay in the neglected streets of a town or city, I am always on the look-out for compositions and textures which capture the imagination.

Left long enough to the will of nature, most manmade environments will eventually fall into disrepair. For an urban decay photographer there is a wealth of interest - and even beauty - to be found in the different ways these decrepit structures take on lives of their own.
