Architectural Afterlife

Johnny Joo. What an awesome name. I’ve been trying to think of a writer alias last name for ages. Johnny Joo (pronounced Yo) is the best name ever. But what’s even cooler than his name is his photography.

I’m totally in love with his photos of abandoned places. I’ve been trawling through them for days and being a writer I feel like each one is a short story, a YA novel or an entire series! I’ve got to admit the hospital ones really freak me out, but below I’ve added a bunch that I thought were particularly awesome. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did and make sure to check out this guy’s work!


I love the abandoned school pics. Introducing my next series of YA novels – Dystopia High.



It’s the end of the world as we know it, but you still have to go to PE/Gym class. Nooooooooo!!!



Did anyone ever see that really bad TV movie Terror in the Mall?



The abandoned bowling alley is one of my faves. What happened here? Why didn’t you even take your awesome retro ashtrays?!



And you forgot your shoes. I love that there is a pair still on the counter.



This diner. I mean, don’t you even put the plates away after your last shift?



And this is probably my favourite of all. The school that’s always closed, because every day is a snow day.
