The Abandoned Televisions photo series is sure to strike a cord in pop culture-loving individuals. It captures a bygone era in which these old, discarded TVs used to play classic shows like 'Little House on the Prairie,' 'Wonder Woman' and 'The Muppets.' As though reminiscing about the good ol' days, these TVs aren't the normally darkened versions of their former selves, but are quite radiant with images of these retro shows on their screens.

Shot by Miami-based graphic designer, art director and photographer Alex Beker, the Abandoned Televisions show the importance of remembering. As Beker puts it, "Suddenly, a discarded black box dying on a sidewalk comes back to life, and so do we--to our past life. In an instant, we identify the show, its characters and maybe even a particular episode, and we are rejuvenated by the memory."
