Seph Lawless Captures Abandoned Disney World in the US

American photographer captures Disney’s River Country that has been closed since 2001.

American photographer Seph Lawless who photographs abandoned buildings presented his photos of Disney’s River Country — a Disney world that was built in 1976 and was closed 15 years ago, PetaPixel writes.

The authors calls what he saw a “real-life Dismal Land”, referring to the “gloomy theme park” created by British street artist Banksy in Weston-super-Mare in August 2015.

“Let’s face it: there are places in this world that most of us could never imagine being abandoned and Disney World tops that list, — Lawless says. — Next month will mark 40 years after the opening day of River Country, and I wanted to capture powerful images that would not only show this eerie abandoned Disney park, but I wanted it to be absolutely beautiful at the same time.”
