Lost Train is one of French photographer Franck Bohbot's most recent projects. The series is aptly named as most of the photographs concentrate on rail yards without any trace of trains. This is jarring in a way; most people expect industrial areas to be, well, industrious. These pictures, however, depict desolate and abandoned scenes. In fact, trains are not the only thing missing from theses photographs. Looking through the series, there are few traces of people.

Forgotten is a word that comes to mind when viewing Bohbot's work. It's almost as though one is looking at fading memories. In many places, this is the state of industry. Bohbot's work achieves a degree of poignancy from this perspective. Stats for Abandoned Industry Shoots Trending: Older & Average
