Impermanence. Photographs Of Beautiful Abandoned Places In Europe

Photographer Christian Richter fell in love with uninhibited buildings when he was just a child and since then has spent his career traveling Europe to capture the beauty within no longer used buildings.

His work ranges from desolate churches to deserted hospitals and can all be seen on his Instagram page, which has an army of followers.

He said: “I simply adore old decaying architecture, their patterns and textures – they remind me that everything is impermanent.”
