abandoned buildings in paris

Things disused are often fascinating, but disused spaces even more so. Being in a place that someone else left behind makes you wonder what happened there and makes you appreciate fully how beautiful an abandoned space can be.

Gregory Chinon explores abandoned buildings in Paris and takes photos of what he finds inside.

Years and years ago, the owner of this little house, lost in a forest, hung himself. Then another man bought it, and hung himself too. Since then, “la maison aux pendus” was left untouched.

Like most great photographers, he has an endless amount of amazing photos. In high school, Maggie and her Dad got clearance to creep around an old abandoned wire factory near her home town.  It was awesome.  Looking at Chinon’s pictures, it sort of makes you want to snoop around abandoned places right? Do it if you can, treasures await!
