Hi, my name is Simon and over the past four years I have traveled to over 40 countries in search of beautiful landscapes, awe-inspiring architecture, but most of all, the best-abandoned locations.

I am a self-taught photographer and I am driven to travel by a desire to capture the most beautiful abandoned images. I have photographed many abandoned churches, asylums, synagogues, steel mills, power plants in countries such as Azerbaijan, Georgia, Thailand, Italy, and Romania. Next year, I hope to travel to Russia and Lebanon.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and I really hope you enjoy looking at the photographs I took.

I like how they sit in semi-circles so you can see the people you're worshiping with.

how can all this just get abandoned?? Why not recycle the metal/materials instead of leaving it to rot?
