For christmas I was given a dvd collection of a documentary called 'Life After People', it's all about what happens to certain areas around the world when humans disappear from earth. The facts of the documentary had to come from places where humans have already disappeared from and left the areas abandoned. One of these places was a small idea of the coast of Nagaski, japan called Hashima, with the nickname of Battleship island (Gunkanjima), because of it's resemblance to a battleship.
What is amazing about this island, is the destruction of it is totally natural, the sea that surrounds the island has been battering it for centuries. the 5,259 inhabbitant had nothing to do with the condition the buildings are in now. Even with this destruction , I find it hard not to see the beauty of it, I like how nature has tried to reclaim back its land from the people.
In all these images, I can imagine standing where the photographer was, and listening to what was around. I can image hearing a slight russle every now and then as if there was something hiding in the shadows.
