Exploring the countryside of any continent, you are bound to come across abandoned buildings. Even within some of the most densely populated cities of the world, buildings that have long since been forgotten still stand tall as a shell of their former selves. They are often dangerous and sometimes spooky, but it’s hard not to wonder what went on there and the reason they are no longer used. It can seem like the stuff horror movies are based on, but who doesn’t love a good mystery?
Driven by her sense of curiosity, Alice van Kempen has set out to explore many of the abandoned buildings and locations that can be found across Europe. However, she didn’t embark on this journey alone. Accompanied by her dog Clair, Alice took these incredibly candid photos in buildings that have seen much better days.
