Abandoned house. Wentworth, May, 2012.

Max Belcher, an American photographer, captured moments in black and white. He liked to photograph abandoned houses that left a powerful statement. He photographed many of his most famous works in Liberia. He angled each shot so that you can see how the house was struggling to stand. He did nothing to change the picture, he simply left them the way he found them. He portrayed what he saw and in what angle he would like to view it. My personal favorite photograph of his is the Macon Hall House in Liberia. This photo is powerful as it an individual house standing by itself only by the splintered wood holding it up. There is nothing on the inside of the house, everything has fallen down. There is no interior or roof on the house which is eery to look at as you can see straight through the house. Because of the fact that the photo is black and white, it adds to the age and to how fragile the house is. It looks like a deck of cards which only needs a push to fall over.
