Photographer Jonny Joo Captures Eerie Images Of Abandoned Buildings

This is the forgotten landscape of post-GFC America. A time when it was cheaper to abandon old factories than attempt to sell them, and where suburb-sized buildings sit forgotten and desolate. An intrepid explorer began visiting these eerie haunts after becoming obsessed with a terrifying computer game.

Jonny Joo visits the derelict malls, stations and towers because they remind him of Silent Hill – a psychological horror game which was made into a film. It inspired him so much that he is now about to release his first book titled Empty Spaces which will feature 116 images.

The professional photographer from Cleveland, Ohio said to Daily Mail: ‘I was always obsessed with Silent Hill as a child, and when the movie came out I was all about that as well. When I first started exploring places so many would remind me of the game – it was a world I was kind of obsessed with because of how dark and eerie it looked.’
