ABOUT THE ARTIST
Photographer Holly Hunt began chasing her hobby as an urban explorer two decades ago, but one cold day in 2013 she decided to incorporate her love of urban exploration with her passion of photography. For the first time she brought her camera along with her into an abandoned psychiatric hospital. As she crawled into a dark, narrow hole in the ground and entered a basement full of cobwebs, debris, falling plaster and rotted wood, something wonderful transpired. In that moment, her collection Abandoned Beauties was born.
Holly’s collection has been showcased exclusively in the Long Island metro area for the past year.
Words from Holly:
Photography is more than my passion, it offers me the opportunity to show the world the beauty that still resides within the walls of places that have been forgotten. It is in the darkness and abandonment of these places that I’m able to let go of my fears, face my demons, tell my own personal story and feel the most alive. I don’t feel any sense of danger when I explore, but more a sense of feeling at home.
