About the Photographer

What is “The Art of Abandonment” and why do I spend so much time in dark dirty places?

The Art of Abandonment – Introduction from Walter Arnold on Vimeo.

 

I enjoy searching for beauty in uncommon places. I’m particularly drawn to locations that have been abandoned, where I strive to create collections of images that tell stories. It is inevitable that some images will stand on their own while others work best within the journalistic context of a site’s larger story. These buildings and locations speak volumes, and in their abandoned, decaying states their voices become that much more poignant. Every room and every artifact from a bygone era holds meaning and mystery. In a way, I’m a ghost hunter. I like to think that by capturing pieces of history, memory and spirit, however faintly it still shines through the dust and decay of these modern ruins, I’m also capturing some essence of the people who once filled these spaces with life.
