I feel very lucky to have entered into the Odeon in its final days before is sad demolition…… it’s an incredible site to see being pulled down at such a dramatic rate… and also to see the very projector windows where Sean jumped through earlier this year, from the street side.
The Odeon is not the only demolished site I have photographed in the past 12 months, Dunkirk fire station is now a pile of rubble…. as is a petrol station nr QMC….and the wonderful old swimming baths and factories on Alfreton Road, which currently beholds an impressive interior, easily viewed from the street. These buildings are our heritage… now gone. ho hum.
I’ve just visited an amazing space on the waters edge of the Trent…. an abandoned building which still manages to stand up like something from a communist state… a risky but very fun trespass… I look forward to visiting this site again soon to capture some interesting moments of play, exploration and have fun….
Its that time of year, when the darkness draws in, I switch on my LED lights and find forgotten spaces….
more updates to follow very soon….
