The World of Forgotten Heritage and Breathtaking Decay

Colors of Decay

Welcome in the world of decay. I explore the normally unseen or off-limit parts of urban areas or industrial facilities to take pictures of the beauty of natural decay, before they are trashed, demolished or renovated. These buildings can be hospitals, castles, manors, industrial buildings or private houses. Mostly the buildings are not free accessible and visiting them is often dangerous. Locations have nicknames, information about these locations will not be given! The reason for this is to protect these often monumental buildings from vandalism. I do not destroy anything or take anything with him. My golden rule is: “Leave nothing but Footprints, Take nothing but Photos”.
