World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places
Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.
John Maloof was at a Chicago thrift auction house when he purchased, on a whim, a box of photographic negatives that had caught his eye. He had no idea at the time, but he had just discovered one of the best street photographers of the 20th century.
Vivian Maier was born in New York, grew up in France, and lived most of her adult life in Chicago working as a nanny. She had absolutely no photographic education or training. Maier’s work was never shown to anyone during her lifetime, and out of the over 100,000 negatives attributed to her, many remain undeveloped.
Vivian Maier: Street Photos is the first published collection of her work, a tribute to one of the great pioneers of American street photography, that for 60 year, no one knew existed.
