Trespass is a selection of photographs of an abandoned car dealership by Vancouver photographer Heather S. Logan. Of the project, she says
Urban exploring, abandoned spaces, decaying infrastructure -- these have always held a certain fascination for me. When presented with the opportunity to explore an abandoned car dealership, one which had been a fixture in my home town for most of my life, I jumped at it. An open fence, a broken door, a year's worth of decay and destruction, all captured during that magic hour before sunset. It's surprising how quickly nature starts to reclaim our urban spaces; vines crawling over anything stationary; grasses sprouting up through the smallest crack in the concrete. It's almost as surprising as how much beauty there can be in that decay.These images show that the spaces of modern civilization are profoundly impermanent and that nature is ready, willing, and able to come and reclaim them when neglected.
