Preserving History Through Photography & Stories of

FORGOTTEN PLACES

I’m Kelly Gomez,

the photographer, researcher, wanderer, and writer behind this project.

I began rambling the backroads looking for abandoned architecture in 2010 and over the past decade, I’ve documented nearly 1,000 historic sites. My hope is that through images and stories, I can help preserve historic places that are quickly disappearing from our landscape. I’d like to invite you to join me on my journey to uncover the history of forgotten places!
