Abandoned Beauty – Urban Decay Photography by Irina Souiki

Peeling paint, crumpled wallpaper and empty chairs are a few of the unexpected beauties that Irina Souiki has found while photographing abandoned buildings. Her work highlights the small details of degeneration as well as its overall effect on a room’s atmosphere. Both perspectives inspire the imagination to wonder about the past lives of each place and object.

To see more of Irina’s photography, visit her Etsy shop, Still Memory Photography.

    Oh wow, you picked all my favorites!! Thank you so much for featuring those images on your website, I am deeply honored! A friend of mine, Katya Horner, brought this to my attention, I will make sure to bookmark your site, it’s full of awesomeness :-)

    I like the images very much – powerful composition making very good use of the available light – but i would reframe from the hooky titles – they distract from the sophistication and elegance of the images – thye don’t need any help
