Disused factories, abandoned prisons, dominating sky scrapers and hidden homes. Peep through the lens of photographer Lisa Beard to discover the secrets behind the doors of these forgotten places...
These photograph’s have been taken from Lisa Beard’s new book Abandoned Illinois: Secrets behind the spaces. In various rural and city places across Illinois, Lisa uses her camera and her imagination to capture the stories of industrialisation, families, and significant moments in history. Among the settings photographed and explored is a prison, an army depot, a factory and various homes.
Lisa Beard is a fine art photographer who also enjoys mixed media work and writing. Lisa has always been drawn to art, particularly photography that tells stories. Much of Lisa’s signature work contains elements of juxtaposition, often through light and dark imagery, beauty and destruction, and the idea of illusion versus reality. Her first book, Abandoned Illinois: Secrets behind the spaces has been published by Fonthill Media and will be available to buy on 28 January 2019.
