Summary Abandoned buildings are a viewfinder into our heritage and often offer a story to tell us, but not everyone will be lucky enough to hear these stories before these buildings are gone for ever. It was this line of thinking that has grown my passion for discovering and exploring abandoned buildings, heritage sties and locations not normally seen by the public eye. With camera in my hand, I have set out to find, visit, photography and document as many of these locations as I can before their stories are lost for ever. With over 140 eye catching images from abandoned places such as eerie old factories, crumbling asylums, untouched country theatres, forgotten homes, all mixed with a small insight into their history, Abandoned Brisbane is a showcase of just some of the amazing locations within a few hours drive of Brisbane that I have been lucky enough to visit over the past few years.
