Abandoned structures are places that open the imagination and invite interpretation. Distressed buildings and weathered remnants of human life are crossed by time and transient inhabitants, inviting one to picture what once was. While often overlooked by passers-by, their skeletal remains act as the perfect subject for the lens of a camera, quietly waiting to be documented and shared.

Abandoned Memphis explores this haunting narrative through a display of photos by urban explorer and photographer, Jay Farrell. In this book, you'll enjoy a variety of derelict structures in the inner city, including iconic abandoned Memphis factories, a defunct school, and other rusted remains of Bluff City. Readers are encouraged to explore the forgotten corners of the state, see the world through different eyes, and take the long road home.
