44 Photographs of Collapse and Urban Decay

AD

Powerful photography is able to invoke emotions like nothing else. Designers are especially affected by these and should take note of inspirational connections. If you’re a fan of urban and city lifestyles then urban decay is a fabulous category of photographs.

Like never before we have a society with older buildings and even more ancient histories. The heritage of our human race has carried on for thousands of years. Yet our evolution as a society has led us to the current state of affairs worldwide. Urban decay photography focuses on the collapsing morals of our societal fiber.

I’ve included 44 amazing examples of decaying photography. If you know of similar examples or great photographers please feel free to share your links below. I often derive powerful feelings of creativity and jolts of energy from such detailed collections.

About 3/4 of these images are striking. As I look at them I can imagine a story built around them.

I did not see any copyright notice in on this page. Are these pictures available for use as illustrations for stories I wright, or is there a way I can license them?
