    Yen Magazine Feature - Power Outage | Lost Collective

    • 2 min read

    Yen Magazine - Lost Collective

    Yen Magazine was one of the first publishers ever to talk to me about Lost Collective, which is quite exciting for me because I love Yen.

    For the record, contrary to the first paragraph of this article, I never actually break into abandoned buildings.

    The article is mostly featured around the White Bay Power Station Lost Collective gallery.

    In a sense, I owe a lot to this article for the reach that Lost Collective has been able to achieve. This was one of the first publications who took the story and shared it, generating a wave of interest in the project in early 2016.

    From there, Lost Collective came to the attention of a bunch of publications, both locally and internationally and I guess it all snowballed from there.

    It's funny looking back on this now and seeing how much my own editing style has progressed from what it was when this article went live to now, (you can compare with pictures from this blog post to the Yen Magazine article).

    Here's an excerpt from the article.

    Raise your hand if you’ve ever wanted to break into an old, creepy abandoned building to take photos. Or is that just us? Photographer Brett Patman gets it, which is why his Lost Collective project involves so many spaces and structures that look like the setting for a zombie movie that hasn’t been made yet.

    This series of images was taken inside White Bay Power Station at Rozelle, in Sydney’s Inner West foreshore area. Built in 1917 and decommissioned in 1983, it’s a pretty creepy spectacle, especially because of details like the games room, still featuring pool tables and other recreational facilities used by the station’s workers.
