These Photos From Abandoned Malls are Hauntingly Beautiful

These abandoned malls have been photographed and they look eerie but beautiful. Malls are generally cluttered with people and busy so it is surreal to see them look completely destroyed with no one in them. These creepy and fascinating photo series shine light on how disturbingly beautiful these abandoned malls really are.

Abandoned malls seem to be popping up all over the United States, particularly in the Midwest. This is because it is where an economic decline had sped up the "going out of business" process. Personally, I think it would be fun to see an abandoned mall in person. These abandoned mall photos symbolize more than just the 2008 recession, they also symbolize shift in the lifestyles of Americans and what ultimately had to happen.
