There is something about Christian Richter‘s photography that is hauntingly beautiful.
The photographer developed a certain fondness for derelict buildings, some of which could have been listed and preserved as cultural heritage sites, but which had fallen into irreversible disrepair. He photographs places that have been by the world, by man, by the people who created them in the first place.
ichter tells that when he was young he fell in love with aRbandoned buildings.
After he got a camera as a present, he started photographing the beauty there. He mostly photographs empty buildings with great staircases or interiors.
The locations were as diverse as factory shop floors, chapels or theaters, and what they all had in common was that you entered them at your own peril.
Fascinatingly deserted. We are drawn to this beautiful emptiness is that we can envision what their world was like when they were new.
Christian Richter does not have a particular website, but you can find his work at christianrichter, and at Bored Panda.
