Neglected

This is my second series, compiled whilst shooting neglected and disused architecture. The images here were created in locations across Europe, from former palaces in Italy and Poland to disused structures in France and Belgium. 

Entitled “Neglected” a word that came to me whilst shooting in France, meaning not receiving proper attention; or disregarded.

Series creation: Late 2015 - December 2016.
