Beyond the wheat fields and off the beaten path, these abandoned and forgotten places lay in wait to tell their stories of a more productive and useful time. From small towns to ghost towns and all the places in between, the vastness of Eastern Kansas can be seen as a curse that will slowly drain a place dry or an untapped resource. Even though these locations are far from the ever-growing city’s reach, they face the same fate when expansion is needed for improvements, or there isn’t enough demand to continue daily operations. However these stories play out, all that is left is a reminder of what used to be: abandoned relics of lives, dreams, and businesses scattered across the open heartland of Eastern Kansas.

REGINA DANIEL specializes in urban exploration photography. She is also the owner and operator of Red Vixen Photography. Covering much of the Kansas City area and the surrounding vicinities, she has gone on to travel through six states in the Midwest doing her abandoned photography. What started as curiosity for the abandoned has turned into documenting the forgotten or lesser-known history lessons and photographing what has stood the test of time. That change from curiosity to preservation led her to write the Abandoned Kansas City book series and Abandoned Picher, Oklahoma. Regina’s passion to photograph the abandoned will continue to have a driving force as long as progression continues to leave the old and obsolete behind for better and brighter tomorrows.
