Ian Ference’s tumblr

Hello, I’m Ian Ference, a full-time working artist with two interrelated photographic projects: documentary architectural and art photography inside historic abandoned buildings, and a newer project capturing fine art nudes inside these same buildings.  I have been traveling amongst the ruins since I was a wee lad of 14; 19 years later, I am fortunate to be able to make a living photographing these wonderful places, lecturing on them, and occasionally writing historic essays on my photoblog, “The Kingston Lounge”.  My work has been featured everywhere from The Brooklyn Museum to The New York Times to Le Monde, and my first book - on an abandoned asylum in Buffalo - will be released in November or December 2014.
