I can’t say why so many photographers enjoy photographing ruins, but I can tell you a few things about ruins that attract me. I think most of all I like the surface textures I find there. But I think I also like to see nature still exercising the upper hand; I especially like when trees grow inside buildings. In ruins you can often see signs of a structure’s basic construction that are often unnoticeable when the object is shiny and new. Probably there is sadness associated with every ruin, and sometimes I think about that, embarrassed to be benefitting from someone else’s misfortune.
