Achingly beautiful, this series of abandoned staircase photography is absolutely stunning, subtly colored and whimsically artistic. The series will have you craning your neck in uncomfortable positions just to be able to follow the steps of each spiraled staircase.
Almost looking like paintings, these dizzyingly spiral collection of abandoned staircase photography by German photographer Christian Richter is so well executed and put together that it looks like something the photographer could have imagined.
The series features vintage staircases in all their forms, some grand and prosperous-looking and bejeweled, while others are made of simple wood and metal frames and follow traditional architecture. Whichever it is, all of them pay homage of decades past when a well-designed staircase would be the center of any home, bringing a sense of stability and harmonious gravity to a space.
