Exploration in Atrophy consists of photographs of decaying buildings throughout Chicago and the Midwest. The liminal space within a building that has been abandoned is both empty and full, physically deprived of most human possessions but emotionally plentiful in stimulus and mystery. Being inside a place with no borders evokes a sense of freedom to do anything and go anywhere but this doesn't come without the heightened awareness that fear and caution bring when being in a space that is more or less unregulated. Abandoned buildings are where man-made destruction and natural decay meet and are intimately intertwined with each other in the most beautiful, seductive, and almost human way. These places feel frozen in time with decades under their belt. There is no real way to describe the stagnant yet active air inside of these structures but I hope these photos help convey a small part of what I fell in love with in these buildings.
