There is something utterly mesmerizing about this abandoned castle photography series. Taken all in just black and white, the powerful and poignant images take you on a ride into the hauntingly beautiful world of forgotten castles that were once full of life. Now desolate and empty, the once-great structures have become nostalgically somber shadows of what they used to be.
With the focus solely on the majestic crumbling structures and nothing else, the abandoned castle photography series will make an imprint on your mind -- and will have you thinking of this series whenever you think of castles from here on out.
The 'Castles Made of Sand' series was shot by photographer, artist and filmmaker Andy Lee with a 5×4 medium format infrared film.
