Abandoned – Conceptual Photography by Richard Allenby-Pratt

A series of photographs, created by Richard Allenby-Pratt. The concept is a Dubai left by people, where only the animals are left to roam the deserted streets. The project was included in the 2011 London Association of Photographers Awards.

This project imagines a future without people, where the relics of our unrealized ambitions are populated by some of the species we have, in the present day, come so close to exterminating. I hope to highlight the fragility of our economic systems and the desperate need for us to live in harmony with the other occupants of our world.

    I like it! I think it works for me because this vision seems very possible.
    There are so many places already like this that I hear about and read of.
    Reminds me of a Ballard novel!

    Toutes les photos de ce blog sont splendides.
    Elles ouvent l’esprit du photographe qui les regarde.
    On devrait le rendre obligatoire dans les écoles de photo.

    I absolutely love photos of abandoned spaces. Terrifying and fascinating. It’s amazing how fast nature reclaims these man-made creations. We should take heed.
