The gallery page contains photos of some of the buildings described in the blog. The places, which I managed to explore thoroughly and where I got lots of good quality photos, are featured here.
Valkolinna, Vaasa (2009)
A building by a famous architect originally built for the Finnish white guard turned first into an abattoir and then a storage for a construction company before being abandoned and demolished in 2009 and 2018.
The Place Where My Nightmares Were Made (2010)
A classy old abattoir in a small Finnish village. The last animals were slaughtered years ago, and now the place houses lots of surprises.
Martinniemi Planing Mill and Power Plant (2011)
Formerly these buildings were part of a complex employing a whole village. They had been vacant and vandalized for decades. The planing mill was demolished later in 2011.
Torinvarsi School, Hamina (2011)
The largest school and a local landmark in a small town, it had fallen into bad shape. Loads of educational history had been left behind, when teaching ended in 2005. The building was demolished in 2012.
Lohipato School, Oulu (2012)
A former school for children with special needs was last used by different small companies and organizations. It was abandoned because of a huge water leak. The building was demolished in 2013.
The Dancing Ghost of the School (2012)
An experimental photo shoot in the school for children with special needs with a dancer.
