Out in the forest north of Stockholm human time stopped. People abandoned the area, and with no one left to do the necessary maintenance, nature started to reclaiming the land. At first only superficially, paint wore down and maybe a broken window, but as water started to seep into the buildings, the decay sped up, and eventually the roofs collapsed. Why the area was abandoned we can only speculate.
Annika Alarotu from Balettakademien in Stockholm joined me for a photoshoot among the ruins of this forgotten place.
When walking around in abandoned places I always wonder what people lived there once, and what their lives looked like.
Many thanks to Annika for joining me on this photoshoot.
