Exploring the abandoned haunts of Australia

Australia is not exactly known for its evolution in architecture and urban exploration hotspots, but Sydney based photographer Brett Patman is redefining the urban landscape and documenting his exploits on Lost Collective.

After pur­chas­ing his first point and shoot cam­era in 2004, Brett grew an obses­sion that leads him to graf­fiti filled halls of Australia’s lost past. Brett’s aim is to cre­ate a visu­al record of Australia’s urb­an land­scape before it is trans­formed into min­im­al­ist­ic skyscrapers.

Show­cas­ing the unique beauty of Sydney’s urb­an haunts, Brett has explored everything from hotels con­struc­ted in the 1800s to the White Bay Power Sta­tion of the 1900s and the crit­ic­ally named Cal­lan Park Hos­pit­al for the Insane.’

Brett doc­u­ments his jour­neys on the Lost Col­lect­ive Ins­tagram, includ­ing details on the his­tory of the aban­doned des­tin­a­tions. Show­ing that Sydney isn’t all Bondi Life­guards and hip­sters, the Lost Col­lect­ive is put­ting the grit and grim back into the beach­side city.
