Your images are so thought provoking, I always wonder what life happened there.
Thanks, Laura! Most of the places I visit have been researched extensively before I photograph them, so in a sense I have a good idea of the history of the location. There are a handful of times where this is simply not possible, and it is times like these that often make me wonder about the past.
How cool is that, Thomas, how fascinating to be know what the buildings you photograph “lived” through.
Most of the time it is cool and interesting, but sometimes it can be depressing, for example when I’m called to photograph abandoned psychiatric hospitals, and/or places that have been left to decay which have a strong historical importance and are irreplaceable.
