Soviet Ghosts – 15 Photos of Abandoned Buildings by Rebecca Litchfield

When large empires fall and their buildings are no longer in use, decay becomes inevitable. In her fascinating project ‘Soviet Ghosts‘, Rebecca Litchfield visited many of the modern ruins of the former USSR to preserve a memory of the past. Not so long ago, the abandoned factories, prisons, schools, hospitals, military barracks, and spy stations in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc were just a part of regular life. Now they’re only brief reminders of the Communist days that like ghosts will slowly fade away.

To see more of Rebecca’s work, you can visit her website, Facebook page or pick up a copy of her book Soviet Ghosts.

Speaking of rotting empires, this looks like Detroit, Michigan.
