Abandoned South Australia: An Arid Journey

Table of

The ruins of South Australia are barren, isolated time capsules. Starkly contrasting the states bustling city centre, we inhale these ghostly narratives upon the opening of each creaking door. A diverse, unique and often unexplored region of the ‘Great Land Down Under’, the visual stories presented here are mere footnotes of South Australia’s long and complex history.

Shane Thoms is a photographer and photojournalist based in Melbourne, Australia. Educated in fine art photography and design via Monash University, Charles Sturt University and the Australian Academy of Design, his work explores the discarded urban space from a cross-cultural perspective. He has visually documented a number of exclusion zones inclusive of Chernobyl, Fukushima, and Plymouth. His books include Abandoned Australia, published in 2019.
