UNINHABITED
2020-2021

“Uninhabited” is an ongoing project which will take around four years to complete, due to the slowing down of the world with the global pandemic.

In this series, I take you to some of our planet’s best ghost towns, villages, and cities – the making of this series and the work is also shown via a behind-the-scenes video on my youtube channel. It is also a larger-than-usual series, due to the fact I visited a large number of locations.

– Exclusive Limited Editions of just 10 per format/size for this series only. Released alongside my book “Fabrica ” in late 2021.

Ajar | Namibia

Same room as the shot "The Magician", however a unique angle and with the morning glow of the sunrise back-lighting the scene.

Diamond In The Sand | Namibia

This set was shot ready for release as a one off release. Officially due to take place in Holland with an exhibition in late 2020.

From Left to Right | Namibia

A beautiful house with a broken open door, which has since been filled with sand in Kolmanskop, a Germany built diamond mining town in the desert.

Bang The Drum | Namibia

Brightly colored wallpaper peeling off the walls, dilapidated houses now inundated in rolling banks of sand and outhouses left to decay.

Aztec | Namibia

Wealthy Kolmanskop became a well of luxury in the barren desert. There was a butcher, a baker, a post office, and an ice factory; fresh water was brought by rail to the area from a nearby underground well.

Teal Tones | Namibia

People were becoming rich overnight simply picking diamonds off the desert floor, but German authorities wanted greater control over the incredible riches. They cracked down, declaring a vast area of Namibia a Sperrgebiet, or restricted zone.

Ever Shifting | Namibia

Open Door Policy | Namibia

Today, as many as 35,000 tourists visit the site every year, bringing money to the nearby coastal town of Lüderitz. There are three possible permits you can buy which allow access to the town.

Green Flakes | UAE

Situated in the North of the UAE in the Middle East, Jazirat Al Hamra literally means “The Red Island”. The once flourishing town, was known for pearl diving. Abandoned since the 1930's.

The Mosque | Al Madam (UAE)

A different town built as late as the 1970’s or 1980’s, people left very quickly. After it was discovered that the climate is harsh. The sand here is really inhospitable.

Orange Glow | Al Madam (UAE)

The highlight for me here was the drone shot that I took of the mosque, But this one looking out of the blue room is a close second.

Part Submerged | Namibia

This is one of the former workers houses that is now hidden at the back of the town, with some homes nearby inaccessible.

House ruins by the coast in namibia

The Watchman | Namibia

Elizabeth Bay is another mining town in southern coast of Namibia, 25 km south of Lüderitz. It was formerly another site for diamonds and is now a ruin.

Orange Glow | Al Madam (UAE)

The stunning little ghost town, is made of 2 rows of houses and it has a mosque at the far end of the village, which looks cool buried in the very orange sand. All of the houses here have now succumbed to the ever shifting sands. The decade long abandoned village, is situated in the middle of the Sharjah desert.
