Photographer Ian Ference has a thing for abandoned buildings. His blog, The Kingston Lounge displays his impressive collection of work, documenting places that have been forgotten for years or even decades. The concept may not be a completely new one, but it relates an important truth about art. With these collections, Ference is able to find beauty in objects or settings that are often thought of as ugly and unwanted. And in a time where we find ourselves obsessed by the latest technology and shiny new possessions, his work stands as an interesting contrast, giving us a look at some of what we've left and neglected along the way. Only a true artist can transform the meaning of a scene simply by portraying it in the right light. Thank Samra for putting me up on this one.
