40 Desolate Photography Features

From Somber Landscape Shoots to Abandoned Architecture Imagery

— January 2, 2015 — Art & Design
These desolate photography examples range from somber landscape shoots to abandoned animal candids that will pull at one's heart strings. Desolate photography often features still, empty and somber imagery like abandoned buildings and vast fields that go for miles and miles.

Standouts from this list include neon lit shoots that capture Los Angeles in the quiet of night along with carnival portraits that feature candid images of fun fair storefronts and gaming booths.

These unique photography features often evoke emotion or give their viewer an uneasy feeling. Whether making one ponder life or addressing social and environmental issues, these images will leave an impression on individuals and force one to think about the state of our universe and its abandoned or impoverished regions.
