Up in the heights of Hanley some students had discovered an old, haunting, but beautifully ominous abandoned pottery factory, here are some phone images of what was found:

Of course I ensured I respected the surroundings, I didn’t disturb the creeking floorboards, or the water logged roof’s.

Carcuses of what was once an office chamber held name stamps and desk chairs.

What was most distrubing about the facory space – was the idea that it seemed that there was a certain ‘unfinished business’ about it. As if all the work people just decided to down-tools and leave one morning.

A great opportunity to photograph  an undisturbed scene – as if it were from a film or a music video of a tortured soul. Unfortunately I only had my phone to take pictures with, but what I did manage to photograph came out quite well.
