Dan Marbaix's photographs of a haunted asylum in England evoke a spine-chilling feeling. The abandoned asylum is littered with a bunch of old machines, a piano and even a bowling alley. It's that realistic depiction that makes the photographs even more disturbing.

As a photographer, Marbaix states that these haunted asylum settings are the absolute perfect spots to get powerful shots. He states that they have "everything a photographer wants," and considering the resulting pictures, it appears he's correct.

Being able to evoke such meaningful emotions without actually having anything there is truly an art form. The haunting cast to the pictures and the stark and dilapidated setting make for a series that gets the viewers imagination running wild.
