Usually an abandoned place is something that can be seen in a horror film. For some reason, the desolate landscape is the perfect setting for them because they easily provide an eerie aesthetic and unsettling feelings. Because of the array of emotions abandoned locations can conjure, they have become popular settings for photographers to use too.

From abandoned malls to entire cities that have been left behind, there are a surprising amount of desolate places around the world. Did you know that even New York City has an island that hasn't been inhabited since the 60s?

These photo series showcase gruesomely abandoned locations like an abandoned veterinarian school in France that still has dead animals in it. And contrarily, it also features intriguing pop culture places like abandoned Star Wars film sets.
