Urban Decay

THIS has been going around my facebook feed and is fascinating to look at.

Photographer Niki Feijen finds the forgotten places and takes incredible photographs of them. I swear it's like a mix of ghost hunting, historic tour and playing Fallout 3, shifting through the ruins of a destroyed civilization. The photos are incredible, haunting, beautiful and make me BURN with curiousity; why were these places abandoned? What will happen to them? What are the stories behind them? And mostly, I just want to explore them for myself. The website with his work is worth looking at AND he has a book. Which I am buying.
