My Photos Of Stairs In Abandoned Buildings That I’ve Collected Over The Years

I grew up in the old GDR (German Democratic Republic). After the reunification of Germany, there were a lot of old buildings left behind that I used to explore without a camera. Years later, a friend gave me a gift an old small digicam because he bought himself a new one.

At this time, I fell in love with photographing old buildings. After I made some fails, I bought a tripod and started exploring new level of photography in October, 2011. I mostly photograph empty buildings with great staircases inside. I simply adore old decaying architecture, their patterns and textures – they remind me that everything is impermanent. Staircase photography is my ongoing project and now I travel around Europe looking for abandoned staircases.

I took these pictures with a 5D MK2 and a wide angle lens 16-35 L mm.

I'm amazed that so much beautiful architecture is allowed to decay and fall into ruin.

This is very sad. One can only imagine how grand these buildings once were. The quality of workmanship tells all. A magic wand is needed.
