Earlier this year, my #photography of #abandoned places across #America and #Japan was featured by +ABC News.

"While these scenes may be a depressing sight to some, Luckhardt maintains a more positive view of his hobby. 'Witnessing the decay of the past can be a reflection of the possibilities of the future,' he says."

Many thanks to Synaesthesia Magazine for featuring 5 of my photos of #abandoned locations in their recent CITIES issue. The photos from western #Canada, Hashima Island (also known as #Gunkanjima and #Detroit are viewable on pages 26, 40, 48, 72 and 80 respectively.

This is a beautifully crafted magazine, so I highly recommend viewing the entire issue!

Many thanks to German magazine i-ref and editor Dominik Wolf for their recent article showcasing 10 of my photos from Japan's #abandoned Hashima Island (also know as #Gunkanjima).

Hashima Island is an abandoned island on the southern coast of #Japan. It was home to a coal mining operation for 80 years before being closed by Mitsubishi in early 1974. At it's peak, the island was home to 5,259 people and had the highest population density in the world (139,100 people/km2). Access to the residential area of the island is strictly forbidden.

The island was recently featured in the James Bond film #Skyfall as the villain's lair (though no actual filming occurred on the island).

Drupal Specialist and Photographer
Introduction

I'm a Toronto-based Drupal Specialist, primarily focusing on system architecture, design, development, theming, site building, content management and project management.

I've been working with Drupal for 6 years.

I'm very active in the Toronto Drupal community, helping to promote Drupal as one of the directors of the non-profit Toronto Drupal User Group. We organize monthly Drupal meetups, DrupalCamp Toronto and other events throughout the year for the Toronto Drupal community.

Apart from Drupal, I'm also an active photographer, with recent features on ABC News, BuzzFeed, Flickr's Blog, Twisted Sifter and TotallyCoolPix.

I'm also learning Japanese and have an obsession with guitars.
