Abandoned photography captures the beauty in urban ruins left behind.
The goal is to give the viewer an exhilarating look at our past and these forgotten places.
From a small amusement park to what was once the world's largest mental asylum, Georgia is home to many fascinating abandoned places. Whether it's the remnants of a defunct hospital, a forgotten mansion, or a desolate race track, they are all left for nature to take over after being discarded by humanity.
There is even one stately mansion that is not entirely vacant since the former owner is buried in the backyard.
In Abandoned Georgia: Exploring the Peach State, photographer Leland Kent showcases eleven abandoned places from across the state. Each chapter gives a detailed narrative about these amazing places, accompanied by stunning imagery.
