Beijing Wonderland

Construction began in 1998 on an ambitious project to build Asia’s largest and greatest amusement park . But since then the “Wonderland” project, outside of Beijing, has been scrapped after funding dried-up. Last year, UK photographer Catherine Hyland explored the haunting semi-ruined park and documented the site in film and still images. Hyland’s photos reveal an eerie landscape of partially built attractions, rides, crumbling infrastructure and encroaching farmland.
