Around eight years ago, when I first started photographing abandoned buildings and objects, I fell in love with photographing abandoned pianos. Since then, I haven’t stopped photographing this beautiful instrument. I can honestly say that I’ve been drawn even more towards it. It’s amazing to imagine the music that would have once played in these decaying places. Pianos are so beautiful—I love their shape and how they are crafted. When I want to unwind, I always listen to piano music. It’s so relaxing, and when I know there is a piano in the building I’m photographing, it’s the first thing I run off to. It’s my favorite instrument.

The pianos in this post have been shot all over the world in different types of buildings. I’ve visited hotels, houses, castles, schools, garages, hospitals, palaces and Chernobyl to photograph them.

If it is a palace shouldn’t the piano have legs?

Make sure you mention the country, not its region. The country in this case is Georgia.

You know sometimes I wonder how people just leave marvelous baby grands behind. Like that's a waste of money. Even if it's unplayable they still look bomb and can always be sold for parts.
