America is a relatively young country but it has a storied history of decaying buildings. For Chicago-based photographer Eric Holubow, documenting these decrepit buildings was a way to immortalize bygone eras. Holubow says;
“There was also something of a rush going into the unknown. It made me feel privileged to see these places that, by definition, so few people did anymore.”
From the beautiful Uptown Theater in Chicago to Packard Auto Plant in Detroit, Holubow’s images literally haunting. Perfect for the days after Halloween, if you ask me. More of Holubow’s photographs can be found in his book Abandoned: America’s Vanishing Landscape.
