These abandoned space captures are the fruits of labor by photographers inspired by what once was.

Fascination with seclusion has made for a vast array of striking imagery that takes the bleak theme of abandonment to artistic levels of visual poetry. Each of these compelling photography series captures objects that have been left subject to erosion and decay. The idea of decomposing splendor is overwhelmingly prominent in the work of various photographers in this compiled list. Aside from the technical ability to capture opulent imagery, each ocular feast is enhanced curious intrigue for the story behind each space.

The nostalgic power of each photograph that depicts abandonment evokes emotions of longing for what once was. Each of these spaces were once grandiose, welcoming and complete.
