Pho­tog­ra­ph­er Sef Law­less demon­strates the impact of theme park clo­sures. His pho­to­set in aban­doned amuse­ment parks has already man­aged to gain world­wide pop­u­lar­i­ty and dis­perse in many pop­u­lar online pub­li­ca­tions, mak­ing the pho­tog­ra­ph­er pop­u­lar.

The idea of ​​aban­doned amuse­ment parks can eas­i­ly be used as an anal­o­gy for child­hood in gen­er­al. While child­hood mem­o­ries will always be vivid, they will change with over­grown veg­e­ta­tion, rust­ed rides and a gen­er­al feel­ing of des­o­la­tion. The reac­tion of peo­ple to such sights depends only on the way they are inter­nal­ly per­ceived. Hap­py, sad, or bewil­dered, they can eas­i­ly get swept up in emo­tion as they view these images. Many even find such land­scapes sooth­ing, not­ing the inevitable tri­umph of nature over man.

A series of aban­doned pho­tographs of amuse­ment parks is impres­sive pre­cise­ly because of this burst of nos­tal­gia that comes with view­ing. Cre­at­ed by Seph Law­less, a series of pho­tographs is described by the author him­self: “I remem­ber rid­ing all these slides as a child, and in the evening sit­ting on a blan­ket by the lake, admir­ing the stars and fire­works. I may not remem­ber what I did yes­ter­day, but I clear­ly and clear­ly remem­ber what is hap­pen­ing here.

It is like­ly that the pho­to­set turned out to be so atmos­pher­ic and live­ly pre­cise­ly thanks to the emo­tion­al involve­ment of the author, who expe­ri­enced the best mem­o­ries of his life and reflect­ed them through pho­tographs.
