Photographer Carlos Gonzalez, aka Theonepointeight, captured these photos of an abandoned LA shopping mall.

Abandoned Mall

PDN has an interview with Gonzalez about the series.

I shot everything in one day. I would say that I spent about five or six hours in there just exploring and shooting. I wasn’t escorted inside but once I snuck into the parking structure, there were a few teens on skateboards that pointed me in the right direction. Without their guidance, there’s no way I would’ve found a way in. The place is simply too massive. In fact, as the daylight was fading I almost got trapped inside since I couldn’t find my way out.
