Over the past two days, both Cameron and I have shared out photographs and experiences of the now abandoned Concourse C at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). The above is a short film put together that offers another perspective on our visit.
The response to parts 1 and 2 of "The Concourse" series has been tremendous. I've really enjoyed all the heartfelt stories, thoughts and memories that people have shared in the comment section, on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
I only visited Concourse C once, in the early 2000's as a teenager heading on vacation with my family. I have a foggy memory of a bus ride from the main airport to a crowded island surrounded by small jets. Concourse C has been by far one of the most interesting places I've ever documented in my six and a half years of running this website. While shooting these photographs and video in the building, it's interesting to contemplate the sea of humanity that once flowed through there on a daily basis - those traveling and those working, both going about their daily lives. What makes abandoned places so compelling to photograph is the lack of humanity and activity, how these locations take on a new life while revealing clues of their past lives.
Yeah, it's an abandoned airport - but to some people, this place meant so much.
