Shedding Light

Stephanie Avery

Avery’s images of abandoned buildings are haunting; whether they were places of work, home, or leisure, they once played a pivotal role in people’s lives. Now they sit in ruins, mere shadows of their past importance. Without their former tenants, they slowly deteriorate. With the help of nature, time, and vandalism, these spaces transform into beautiful scenes of decay. Captured by Avery, they remind the viewer of what has been forgotten.
