In a series of eerie images, photographer Seph Lawless captures amusement parks around the Midwest years after they’d been closed and abandoned. The photos, taken as part of Lawless’ upcoming book “Abandoned: Hauntingly Beautiful Deserted Theme Parks,” feature parks in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. They are among 13 deserted parks featured in Lawless’ book. They include the Enchanted Forest Playland in Toledo, Ohio; Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio; Chippewa Lake in Medina, Ohio; Funspot Park in Indiana; and Prehistoric Forest in Michigan.
