Over on my Instagram account, I now almost exclusively shoot Japan’s faded and crumbling buildings. As subjects I find them genuinely fascinating, but aside from the abandoned buildings connection, it’s also a very different discipline to photographing people. They are all iPhone shots too. And in the square format. So it’s a nice change of both pace and practice.
Some scenes, however, are better suited to a more conventional 35mm shot, so over time I’ve been collecting (and occasionally posting) the resultant images. And below, having now accumulated enough for a set, is a small selection of them. For me, there’s both a beauty and quiet melancholy about such structures. Something that hopefully appeals to others too. If it does, the full series of over 40 photos is now on my portfolio site. More specifically, here.
