Abandoned Series chronicles Europe’s empty buildings by Christian Richter


German photographer Christian Richter has been breaking into abandoned buildings across Europe to capture their “swan song” for his Abandoned series. Richter, 36, was born in the then German Democratic Republic and started exploring abandoned buildings after the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989.

He began taking amateur pictures of these structures after a friend gave him a small digital camera as a gift, which eventually led to a career as a fine art photographer. The Abandoned series began in 2011 and is continuing to evolve. Richter has broken into more than 1000 buildings in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy and Poland, aided by a network of friends who suggest new places for him to visit.

“Abandoned photography is my ongoing project and now I travel around Europe looking for abandoned buildings. I adore old decaying architecture, the patterns and textures – they remind me that everything is impermanent,” said Ritcher.
