In this semi-fictional guide, photographer Andrew Emond provides readers with a compendium of methods used to locate uninhabited homes.
Based on his experiences accessing and photographing vacant properties in Toronto, Canada, Emond combines forensic level information, unearthed evidence and the occasional red herring designed to perplex.
How to Find an Abandoned House interweaves text and images to reveal a world of human traces, found objects and rooms in various states of disorder and disarray. The book provides a glimpse inside a city’s concealed spaces, presenting a world that feels both familiar and surreal.
