Matt Emmett is no stranger to exploring abandoned places and capturing stunning photos of derelict buildings and structures.
The photographer has been at it for five years, traveling across Europe and capturing all of the beautiful urban decay he comes across. While most of us would be deterred by “Keep Out” signs, Emmett sees them as an invitation to discover what stories these locations hold inside their walls.
In his first book, “Forgotten Heritage,” Emmett shares some of the most incredible architecture he’s had the pleasure of visiting, and explains how he fell in love with this photography. Here is a small sampling of his amazing work.
This gorgeous view is of the ruined Gwrych Castle’s towers and living quarters in Wales.
This photo taken from the inside of a massive cooling tower in Belgium does a good job of making you feel small.
