Inspirations – Brian Day

© Brian Day

This image was taken at the abandoned City Methodist Church in Gary, Indiana. The presence of the piano and drifts of snow all around are symbolic of the poetic decline of neglected architecture. In this case, the structure, built in 1926 in the English Gothic style, reveals clues about a prosperous time that has come and gone in a now troubled city. I wanted to capture not only the sense of scale, but the powerful effects of time and nature’s reclamation of dereliction. ~ Brian Day

  1. Enjoyed your web site. Nice work.

  2. This is a very inspirational Photograph. It reminds me very much of the abandoned Detroit Train Station in Michigan. You’ve captured a piece of history and brought out the beauty in it’s decay.
