Photos of the secret interiors of buildings.

One Wall Away: Hidden Spaces. Jan Theun van Rees photographs secret spaces in Chicago landmarks to allow us to access to what we normally never get to see. My favorites: the old heating ducts for Unity Temple, and inside the Bean. He other series explore Amsterdam's disused theaters, galleries and museums and various personal looks at public spaces.

Ducts? It needs ducts? That's awesome.

These are beautiful. I was just here not too long ago dying to see the other side. Very cool.

Ahmana infiltrate these spots with the ducts and play the soundtrack to “Brazil” through them.
Don’t know about Oak Park. Looks to ancient.
But there’s something really funny about the Bean just sitting there with “Brazil” coming out of it, tourists all around it. Yeah. Might be worth the trespassing fine.

...sorry. I'm just very fond of behind-the-scenes spaces. I wish I could live back there.
