Best of Kickstarter: The Second Lives of Old Pizza Hut Locations

HO_HAI_TRAN_PIZZA_HUNT_1HO_HAI_TRAN_PIZZA_HUNT_2HO_HAI_TRAN_PIZZA_HUNT_3

Sydney-based photographer Ho Hai Tran has been documenting Pizza Huts that are no longer Pizza Huts; locations that have been converted into other businesses such as pawn shops, churches, and liquor stores.

Tran’s just launched the wonderfully hopeful “Pizza Hunt” Kickstarter so he can make a nice book of all his photos (so far he’s shot more than 100 Pizza Huts).

Watch the video below!
