Description

“Among the cobwebs and faint light that streams through the boards of broken windows, photographer Jeff Hagerman hopes to unravel the secrets of the past. Slipping into untouched abandoned spaces, it’s here Hagerman is able to document the stories of those forgotten–and unknown. The Atlanta-based explorer started taking photographs in 2012 and never imagined he’d expose the city’s underbelly. Whether crawling through the city’s sewer system to uncover hidden history of Martin Luther King Jr. or jumping in windows of remarkable vacated school buildings, he’s unraveling treasures that make Atlanta so unique. Follow Hagerman through the smell of death and away from the peering eyes of security, and see what it’s like to access some of the more inaccessible locations in the city.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

JEFF HAGERMAN has spent the last six years searching for and exploring abandoned locations all over the United States. What started as a self-taught hobby became an obsession, and produced a large collection of photos of ever-changing and disappearing places. As a long-time resident of Atlanta, Georgia, much of the collection contains his home city. Buildings most people would stay away from are the buildings most attractive to him. Jeff’s photos have been published by Yahoo News, The Weather Channel, WSB-TV, Creative Loafing, Daily Mail, Mirror, The Sun, and more. His work has been displayed at Notch 8, City of Ink, Radial CafĂ©, and by Atlanta Contact Point. Follow his work on Instagram @sloppystick and on his website www.jhagphoto.com.
