Meet the Author

From photographer Rusty Tagliareni:
“My interest in the abandoned dates back to my high-school days in the darkroom. Bathed in the red light and splashed with various chemicals, I spent much time in that small developing room discovering what a photograph actually was. It was fascinating to me how an outwardly simple image upon a piece of paper could evoke such a range of emotions. My first outings to abandoned locations were ones of pure aesthetic reasons, I found that there were things in these places that I saw mimicked nowhere else. The way light creeps and slithers into dark corners, the abstract patterns found in the flakes of peeling paint, and the surreal imagery of nature once again reclaiming a place it had lost long ago. After spending some time with these places, I began to realize there was much more contained within these rotten walls than simply "a good picture". There were stories here, ones of lives that had come and gone, events seen nowhere else.
“Things of great importance, be them on a grand or personal level, it does not matter. This connection that I saw between the past and the present, a hushed tale spoken through rot and filth-covered floors, was one that I kept an earnest interest in from those days forth. When time permitted (and sometimes even when it didn't), I continued to pursue these endeavors with the documenting, researching, and sharing of abandoned places. What drove my in these efforts is still something I have trouble communicating in words, spoken or otherwise. Best I can describe it is the somber feeling of something slipping slowly through your fingers, here for a brief but beautiful interlude, then gone forever to the annals of history.
The purpose of my work is simply to enlighten. My hope though, is that through this comes a better respect for these places and for those who document them.”

    After figuring out the issue......

    Apparently the format is that each page is an image so instead of looking at each page as a full page on my screen, I have to double tap and scroll around to read the content off screen. Not a problem to do, however it does take away from enjoyment of just a relax easy read. Next time I would probably just purchase the hard copy magazine edition so I can see the entire page at the same time.

    Not Readable¿..

    I was so looking forward to reading this E book, I have read so many books from Weird N.J. and always so satisfied. This E book you cannot read all the words on the edge of each ling is cut off. I have a nook color and while the pictures are great you almost feel like your in the room the pics are so great however you cannot read the article… just a little disappointed…..

    Part of the page ends are missing. A terrible photo copy job!
     The first couple of letters are missing on each line of sentences.
