Photos: occupied and abandoned- buildings in the city

Photography

Bristol 2014: Political and economic changes have transformed industry, buildings and ultimately the people who live and work in this city.

As we look around we find a stark contrast between old and new, occupied and abandoned.

In these photos I try to capture some of Bristol’s history and culture through the physical landscape of the city.
