Abandoned at the Brewery Photography Exhibit Opening

Andrew Toppan is a Portland area craft beer enthusiast who is often seen with a camera in hand. Over the years his casual photography has followed his interests and travels, often to New England's scenic vistas. In the past two years he has turned his focus to less-photographed subjects including abandoned buildings, railroads, and graffiti. This work revives childhood interests in railroads and abandoned buildings, rooted in occasional weekend explorations of Boston's abandoned coastal forts and rail yards. As an engineer employed in a heavy industrial field, he finds himself naturally drawn to the relics of departed industries, and inevitably to their deepest, darkest corners. This show features five former industrial sites in New England, ranging from textile mills and clothespin factories to railroad shops and power plants.
