about this piece
About this piece:
Tunnel book with gate opening.
Abandoned structures can be found beside many backroads of America. These mills, factories, foundries, and plants are no longer running. Rust and silence are all they produce now. Workers are gone, along with a way of life. This book began as a series of photos of an abandoned glass factory in Vineland, New Jersey.
