Abandoned : Hauntingly Beautiful Deserted Theme Parks
by Seph Lawless




Overview -
Huffington Post called him "a master of the abandoned"--and for good reason. Take a strange and wonderful photographic journey into a world time has forgotten--amusement parks that have been shut down and overgrown.

The "artivist" known only as Seph Lawless has spent the last ten years photo-documenting the America that was left behind in the throes of economic instability and overall decline--decrepit shopping malls, houses, factories, even amusement parks.

Through nearly two hundred gorgeous and elegiac photographs, Abandoned details Lawless's journey into what was once the very heart of American entertainment: the amusement park. Here is includes:

  • Disney World's Discovery Island and River Country
  • Joyland Amusement Park
  • Dogpatch USA
  • Fun Spot Amusement Park and Zoo
  • Bushkill Amusement Park
  • Land of Oz
  • Lake Shawnee Amusement Park
  • Geauga Lake Amusement Park
  • Spreepark
  • Chippewa Lake Amusement Park
  • Enchanted Forest Playland
  • And more

Lawless visits deserted parks across the country, capturing in stark detail their dilapidated state, natural overgrowth, and obvious duality of sad and playful symbolism. Previously self-published as Bizarro, this updated edition of Lawless's photographic tribute to decaying American amusement parks contains new content and a new foreword.
