Each abandoned place will speak to you of its past in subtle ways. When I photograph copper mining ruins, the places give a heavy air and thick walls of stone send the message of back-breaking work and long hours of toil, Even the old mining houses, owned by the company give a message. As they were all built at the same time and were initially identical, one gets the feeling that workers were viewed as only just that by the mining company. This abandoned farm, on the other hand, is a place that emanates both vibes of hard work, but also of family and independence in a harsh environment. Pay attention when you work and slow down-the messages will come.
“Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.”
