The Macassar Beach Pavilion was built in 1991 and used to be a popular beach resort in the Cape Town area. It has been left to decay after a series of financial mishaps in an unknown year. Dulled colours, chipping paint, broken windows and cracked water slides points to a past that has been forgotten, but cannot be shaken. The ever-shifting sand dunes have taken over and pours through every opening into the structure to replace the people that once filled out the resort. Kids often get chased from the abandoned building as it is a safety hazard, with pillars and walls threatening to collapse. All that's left overlooking the ocean is the empty shell of a slowly crumbling castle, spilling onto the lonely beach.
I'm so excited to say that this submission to Feature Shoot made me one of three winners in their group show of abandoned places from around the world. Check it out!
