Christopher Payne – North Brother Island

Christopher Payne is an American photographer who has been visiting and photographing North Brother Island since 2008. North Brother Island is an entirely abandoned space in one of the busiest places in the world – New York. Situated in the East River, between The Bronx and Riker’s Island – it was primarily used as a quarantine hospital but has been uninhabited since 1963.

Photos of abandoned spaces are always so intriguing and these are just as compelling.
