Abandoned structures are places that open the imagination and invite interpretation. Distressed wood and weathered remnants of human life are crossed by time and animal tracks, inviting one to picture what once was. Abandoned homes and buildings offer a unique, distressed beauty. While often overlooked by passers-by, their skeletal remains act as the perfect subject for the lens of a camera, quietly waiting to be captured and shared.

Abandoned Alabama explores this haunting narrative through its display of photos by abandoned building photographer Jay Farrell. Readers are encouraged to explore the forgotten corners of the state, see the world through different eyes, and take the long road home.

Editorial Reviews

"Have you ever wondered about that back road you've always driven by, but never taken? How about that abandoned building? How did it come to be left to overgrowth, weeds, and who knows what else? This book could properly be subtitled 'The Road You've Never Taken, But I Have,' by Jay Farrell. Farrell, a Nashvillian and professional photographer of abandoned buildings, is fascinated by his subject. We see in this collection some of his favorite discoveries in places as far afield as ramshackle houses and barns in Cherokee County Alabama, to even a ruined bargain store in a virtual ghost town."
