Pulp Nonfiction

It’s always jarring to see the moldering stacks of books that can be found in most abandoned schools in Gary. With a shrinking population and tax base, I understand why the school itself gets shuttered, but surely the books themselves could be of use? Here, at the former Edison Elementary school, the books’ final resting place is the tiny gymnasium. Observant readers will spot a ghost, courtesy of HDR stacking and long exposures. Boo!

Ashes to ashes, pulp to pulp.

  1. Whoa, the ghost is awesome! You should totally have ran with it and played it off. :D

    This picture is one of my personal favorites of yours. Such a fantastic shot, I tweeted it by itself.
