The images from the series Ruins were part of a specific effort to document the enormous number of vacant and deteriorating buildings and homes that currently comprise approximately 30,000 unoccupied properties in Baltimore City. These photographs center on the recent fire-related collapse and disintegration of a large local warehouse. The four-story warehouse had previously been vacant before a three-alarm fire took place in November 2014. High winds caused hot embers to fly over several blocks, causing an additional five vacant buildings and two boats to catch on fire.
There has yet to be any reconstruction of the space.
