NOT OUR USUAL MEETING DAY
Rediscovering Europe's Forgotten Heritage
Feb 12, 2022 @4PM

After a chance encounter with an abandoned jet engine testing establishment, Matt Emmett was drawn into the world of abandoned photography, he became obsessed with the fascinating back stories and tangible sense of place and history at the locations he visited. Capturing and bringing these stories into peoples homes via his social channels has evolved into a decade long project titled, 'Forgotten Heritage

From the crumbling shells of Italy’s abandoned villas and asylums to the raw spectacle of Belgium’s rusting industrial remnants. Immense and powerful beauty is revealed in the images he brings back from places long forgotten by humans. The images, although produced primarily as art also form an important collection with regards to visual preservation of our built environment and heritage, many of the places Emmett has captured have since been redeveloped or demolished.
