The Unknown Story

The Unknown Story

The Unknown Story

Coral Aston

The theme of decay has always enticed me. I have been drawn to this mysterious building and have taken many photo shoots here. I wanted to capture the atmosphere and the unknown stories of the house in one photo. This photo has been taken from the opening of the house, the stairs are the first thing you see. This eerie entrance intrigues those who venture to explore through the different pathways of the unknown. The cover of the story. The house is extravagant and holds many interesting places and objects. The atmosphere and destroyed area holds a story. Each object has a unique tale. As well as the stories, I also wanted to question our own actions. Why would someone abandon such a beautiful home? Why would they leave a claw foot bathtub? Why are these objects left behind, like they belong to the house? This photo welcomes you to explore the stories of the past of how the house is today. This photo is the cover of the unknown story.
