The abandoned swimming pool at Centlivre Village Apartments in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The pool is drained, except for a few inches of rainwater that have collected in the bottom. The floats that divided the shallow end from the deep end hang from their line across the top of the pool.

Empty Pool At Centlivre Village

The swimming pool at Centlivre Village Apartments in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The pool has been drained for several years, but has some water from recent rains.

Centlivre Village was built as a luxury apartment complex about 50 years ago; but since the 1990s it has fallen into disrepair, and has been almost completely abandoned for several years. Many of the buildings have boarded-up doors and broken windows, but a few tenants still live in a couple of them.

According to an article in The News-Sentinel, Centlivre Village was bought in March, 2016 by some local developers who plan to renovate and reopen the complex. When I photographed it in June, some work had already begun.

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
