Testing out the new, more frequent, blog posts. Will try to do a couple a week. The regular IDN Spotlights will still occur to recap and showcase more photography.

Welcome to the Industrial Decay Spotlight.


Apologies for the very long delay. Just getting back online from a big move. Going forward I would like to try a new format in order to have more frequent updates. Starting in the next few weeks I will try to post at least one image on a daily basis. The IDN Spotlight will still occur around every month to recap all of the photos showcased in the previous month.


Please note, IDN04 was set to release November of 2011. November has been the regular release month since IDN01, but unfortunately it has been delayed until further notice. It is still being developed but at a slower pace.
I am currently in search of a publisher for the 4th installment.


If you are a book publisher and would like to publish the next IDN book, please email Chris at chris.sigma@gmail.com







This blog serves as a source of inspiration to photographers, artists, urban explorers, game designers, architects and many other types of individuals. Here are some of the ways you can connect with the IDN.
