Photographer Takes Pictures of Abandoned Places Where Nature has Taken Over and Gives Them New Life

Nature has a way of recovering its rights. The houses that we build are not ours forever. Like everything in life, they are only temporary. Some we give, some we sell. And some are abandoned, given to nature’s open embrace. Those artificial structures are thought of as forgotten and erased from anyone’s memory. However, it doesn’t forget and makes them beautiful once more. Someone is bound to find that beauty.

That someone is Roman Thiery. He is a French photographer extraordinaire. For almost ten years, he traveled throughout Europe, searching for abandoned places that nature has taken over. He breathes new life into them and shares with us.
