The Jamestown Mall

Some photos from the now defunct Jamestown Mall in north St. Louis. The mall closed for good in July 2014 but had been in decline for years. It was supposed to reinvigorate the area but never caught on because of the location. After it shut down it was broken into quite a bit by urban explorers and others. It is a place I had been wanting to get in to photograph but I didn’t want to trespass. A friend of mine who is also an urban explored got permission for some of us to go in and photograph it before it is finally torn down. It was quite a day to finally see it, but also sad. I will be posting more photos in the coming weeks.

Originally from Oregon and after a career in the Air Force I ended up settling down in the St. Louis area. I have always taken pictures but seven years ago I decided it was time to really start learning the art of photography. Between work and family what little free time is spent out exploring the region. I am fascinated with nature, the man-made world and the interaction between them. This is especially apparent in all of the urban decay that exists in St. Louis. Nature is reclaiming so many areas while the people who live there do their best to hang on. I also have a degree in Graphic Design so patterns, shapes, and textures also speak to me.
