The Jonathan May 'Abandoned Airfield' collection is a hauntingly hazy series of sun-drenched photography. The series is shot in Novgorod, Russia at an abandoned airplane terminal with a massive vintage aircraft.

The series boasts a wisdom that comes with the obvious age of the scenery. Jonathan May puts emphasis on the emptiness of the airfield with use of expert lighting and angles. Cracked paint, empty doorways and massive machinery well past its time are included in the shots, making this Jonathan May 'Abandoned Airfield' shoot a mystifying composition full of skill and spookiness.
