This project started when an old photo caught the attention of photographer Pablo Iglesias Maurer. The photo was a postcard from a resort in the 1960’s. Pablo began wondering how is this place now and this led him to create an amazing series of photos titled Abandoned places.
The postcard was entitled “How to do a successful golf course”, but when Maurer visited the place, he discovered that is not the same place anymore. He turned his camera on the abandoned building and pulled out the same photo ‘ 5 decades after “.
From that moment, Pablo ordered other 60 postcards from eBay and started visiting these places to photograph them in their present condition.
“The places have changed and nothing shows the resemblance of the past. Many times, I try very hard to bring into balance the 2 photos. But time blurs the difference and brings everything into focus,” Maurer said.
