There’s something Ozymandian about Christian Richter’s abandoned buildings - ornate halls with grand pianos and plush furniture slowly decaying into dust, beds sprouting grass, cinemas caving in.

“When I was young, I fell in love with abandoned buildings. After I got a camera as a present, I started photographing the beauty there. I mostly photograph empty buildings with great staircases or interiors,” he told BoredPanda.

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