Empty Homes

Originally filmed February 2010

The Story: A Chicago woman photographs a series of abandoned homes, starting with the one she grew up in.

Behind the Story: Alyssa was pretty nonchalant about traipsing around in these abandoned homes, even after it was clear that the doors were broken down and someone could have been in there.  I was nervous.  I’ve been in a fair number of sketchy places shooting stories, but I wasn’t looking forward to disturbing someone squatting in an abandoned building.  Nothing happened of course.

More info: Alyssa Miserendino’s website & portfolio (she photographs lots more than abandoned buildings.)
