After Humans: A Documentation of Abandonment

I'm currently working on a Documentary Project for my Photo II class.
After noting the prevalence of abandoned homes here in central Arkansas, I decided to photograph some of them in order to document what occurs with man-made homes after humans exist in them.

For this project, I decided to print in full-frame, & i am really diggin' the outcome.
Some of what I am doing was inspired by a beautiful artist, Kevin Bauman, who created the project 100 Abandoned Houses. Check out his work-it's absolutely astounding.

The photos in this post are two of the houses I have photographed & printed thus far.

Beautiful. My husband and I love visiting Eureka Springs, and every time we go, I stare out the window at all the lovely abandoned houses along the way.

I've been drawn to abandoned houses lately as well!
