Abandoned Places by Bart Synowiec

Canadian photographer Bart Synowiec is known for his Systematic Compositions, a series of photographs taking in abandoned places. Synowiec has managed to find a way through these photos that capture both life (beauty) and death (the end). He takes each shot using his black-and-white Leica M Camera but still finds time for color shots—a splash of deep blue on an old piano or yellows peeking out from behind curtains during one photoshoot at an asylum where many lost their lives due to overcrowding. It’s an eerie and ethereal place, where the old exist alongside piles of garbage and decay as if time had stopped in its tracks. From factories to train stations to derelict buildings with graffiti on their walls – this is what remains after we are gone; it’s proof there was once life here but now all you see around you is solitude instead. His work has been featured internationally and nationally at art galleries such as the Art Gallery of Alberta or Toronto’s Museum Of Contemporary Canadian Art
