...in my sobriety, behind the old facade

Art Deliverance - Alex Klochkov's gallery of abandonment from the Soviet Union. There's next to no explanation of the photos, unfortunately. Indirectly via Retrospectacle's post about the brain lab.

They do some interesting lighting tricks: f.i. taking a long exposure of a dark space and walking through it with a lamp, lighting out the interesting bits.

Those are some magnificent photos.

I totally agree with you jouke, the way he used the lighting makes them that much better.

These are great, but I really wish he'd used thumbnails.

On that last set, I've got to say they've really got courage climbing up to the top of that cooling tower on that rusty ladder.

Great post. Thanks, Wolfdog.

Superb. The lack of explanation is annoying, but the abandoned manor is Muromtsevo (Муромцево), southeast of the city of Vladimir; you can see more photos here (text in Russian).

Very nice - the use of his friends makes them rather good fun too.
