Join fine art photographer Keith Dotson as he explores and photographs an abandoned house in the woods, with clothes and furniture still inside!
This video and associated photographs were made recently at an abandoned house in the piney woods of north Georgia, between Atlanta and Chattanooga. The house was an unexpected discovery and still had clothes and furniture inside, although I suspect the clothes and shoes had been placed by previous explorers rather than the home owners. The leafy ground around the exterior of the collapsing house was littered with old shoes, household items, and broken glass.
Behind-the-scenes bonus photographs from the location
Below are a few more bonus phone images shot on location.
The photograph above shows the asphalt siding that was designed to look like bricks. I’ve seen this material on old houses around the US, and particularly in the south.
Below is a passage about this siding from inspectapedia.com:
“Asphalt building siding became a popular building renovation alternative to painting weathered or rotted wood clapboard or wood shingle siding as early as the 1930’s, becoming popular in the 1940’s and the 1950’s in North America where it was used both for low-cost housing and for covering the deteriorated exterior walls of older homes.”
Thanks for reading.
