Earlier this week we explored the ruins of Detroit. Wastelands, a series by UK-based photographer Dan Dubowitz, looks at similar abandoned spaces in cities in Scotland, Germany, England, Italy, Cuba, and right here in the US. “These places were all visited between 2000 and 2005, usually alone, with a camera and a notebook,” he explains. “The exposures often ran to twenty — thirty minutes during which time there was an opportunity to take in the scene and come to know these places.” Click through to check out a gallery of his work, which recently won an Honorable Mention at the Lens Culture International Exposure Awards.
