Ruins of American Homes


At this point I've visited more abandoned homes than I can really count. Often they get lost in the shuffle in terms of posting/editing; it's harder to find information on their histories (unless you're the type of photographer that just makes it up), sometimes there's really only one or two good photographs in a location, and they tend to blur together over time. That being said, homes are perhaps the most intimate sites of all, with the fragments of people's lives strewn about like a puzzle that will never quite fit together again. I put together a collection of some of the many places I visited. I don't know what happened in many of them, why people left, who they were. You have the same clues I do, and it's doubtful the mysteries will ever be solved.
