The eternal silence of these infinite spaces terrifies me.

Blaise Pascal, Pensées

This project is a visual research into the meaning and relevance of emptiness, translated through a series of pictures of abandoned sites shot over the last year. By using the bare negatives, sequencing them and stacking them, do I not only seek emptiness, but also its relation to photography as a medium.
