Ongoing Documentary Work

For the last 3 years I have been documenting the slow decay of a hotel on Andros, an island in the Bahamas, that has been abandoned for the last 40 or so years.  These images are from my last excursion.  At this point, I generally know how much it will change from visit to visit, but there are still surprises.  This time, for instance, I was greeted by a termite mound in one of the hotel rooms that had fallen through the ceiling; it was the size of an armchair.  There were also more bats than I had seen in the past, which was very cool.  My friend Virmeano accompanied me, and it was my first time taking a companion.  It is interesting how your photo methodology changes with the addition of someone else in your “hunting party.”  When I am alone, I do not think twice about walking over piles of broken glass or blindly walking into rooms; I am much more cautious after I hear someone behind me gasp dramatically.
