For those of you who have been wondering about the abandoned Wonderland project in China, Catherine Hyland has documented its current state through the wonderful medium of photography. This simple and direct photo series, aptly titled Wonderland, depicts the deserted amusement park with a subdued and quiet tone.

Based in London, England, Catherine Hyland has always gravitated towards the awesome sights of certain landscapes, which, to her, act "as an underpin to the inconceivable scale of the man-made and natural world." By seeking out authentic industrial sites in particular, Catherine Hyland explores the ideas of performance and the strangeness of what is actually real. These sites are often shielded from the public until ready to be enjoyed. Wonderland is one of these places. Stats for Abandoned Amusement Park Photography Trending: Older & Average
