welcome to disappearing RI
Disappearing RI explores the state of Rhode Island through photos of abandoned buildings and redeveloped areas in cities and towns that have played a part in Rhode Islands rich history.
Over the past ten years I’ve taken photographs of various locations in the state of Rhode Island. Often I had little knowledge of the importance these places had. And in some cases I was unaware that I was photographing a landmark. My curiosity took me beyond the photos as I researched the history of these urban ruins. It's all to easy to dismiss an abandoned boarded-up decaying eyesore that no longer serves a purpose. Hopefully this site will bring an appreciation to these disappearing landmarks and provide both a visual history for those who may be too young to have seen certain landmarks and a source of nostalgia for those who remember them well.
