Industrial beauty

Canadian photographer Chris Smart makes abandoned factories beautiful with these pictures. His obsession has been made into the book Surface.

At first glance the pictures seem creepy and boring, but if you take a second look you will discover the atmospheric beauty and majesty of old exiting history. They remind of the ruins of Greek and Roman temples.

For en fantastisk flott vindeltrapp - kunne godt hatt et atelier med den som skulptur.
Ha en deilig dag!
Klem fra mamma

Mm.. helt enig, den er kjempevakker. Synd at den står ubrukt og forlatt.
