Hobart Abandoned Shops
Within every city there are spaces and buildings that remain abandoned and ignored. You wouldn't find any tourist brochure advertising the run down areas of a city, and probably for good reason. But these abandoned places tell another story of a building, street, suburb or city. They provide another chapter of a city, other then the "highly airbrushed" areas.
This former commercial building in Hobart has obviously seen better days, and has been in this state for quite some time now. The classic modernist 1960s facade is visible, with many shops of the period adorning small square tiles to the facade.
About the project
Join me (Thomas Ryan Photography) on a photographic project documenting Tasmanian 20th Century Modernism from the 1930's to the 1980's. The entire project gallery of 1000+ images and counting can be viewed on my website www.tryanphotos.com under art projects. I have been undertaking this project for over a decade.
