In light of the grim picture painted of Nottingham by illiterate ex-residents, I thought it would be interesting to get some viewpoints of the dark side of our region.
As you may know I spend my time photographing derelict and abandoned buildings in the region, particularly industrial places, that said I feel this thread should go beyond this - images of slum clearing, vandalism and the likes should be included here.
