INDIANA - Gary
Where Michael Jackson was born.
Losing 55% of its population over the last 40 years, rising and falling with the American steel industry, it was named 'murder capital of the U.S' in the 90s and 1/3 homes in Gary Indiana are now thought to be abandoned.
I wanted to drive through it to see it for myself. The decaying infrastructure was like nothing I'd ever seen before, from abandoned schools, burger bars, cinemas, malls and libraries. It was extremely eye opening to see a place that was once such a thriving city.
I found a way into this church to take some photos. I've always had a fascination with abandoned spaces and there was something so heartbreakingly beautiful about this place 💔
