The City of Versailles, Woodford County, founded in 1792.

A series of images created along a two mile stretch of road in Versailles in the state of Kentucky documenting abandoned Bourbon distilleries.

It's so vast in Kentucky, there simply isn't the need to demolish. Instead these vast plots, each spanning several hundred yards, become an ever-increasing part of the landscape as nature relentlessly moves on.

It felt like a ghost town - an entire community gone, huge industrial buildings, cafes, workshops and even places of sanctuary. Abandoned.
