New York based photographer Andrew Moore is best known for capturing the eerie, yet captivating, feel of decaying and abandoned buildings from Governors Island to Detroit and Indiana to Ohio. My favorite of these post apocalyptic images has to be the house engulfed in leaves and the Dali-esque melted clock.

wow. these are seriously so gorgeous! x
These images remind me of that final scene in Sophia Coppola’s Marie-Antoinette, when the French people stormed the palace in Versailles, and tore the whole place apart. You didn’t see their actions, you just saw what was left behind. Beautiful and haunting.
Amazing pics! Thank’s for sharing!

How beautiful, amazing and sad all at the same time. My favorite one is the first one with the mirror that says “my heart is missing!”

The place looks as if it was frozen in time.
So gorgeous! How fragile our man-made world really is.
These are so beautiful and so sad.
This is really neat!
These are really interesting. Kind of sad…but beautiful at the same time. Thanks for sharing.
go for the glam
These building are beautiful as they are, but can you imagine what you could do with these spaces if renovated….especially the second one!!
as a theatre historian, it’s particularly sad to see all these pretty little prosceniums in decay – a testament to the popular theatre of the 19th century and the road system which once thrived so vigorously in this country. That little tiny pocket theatre with the golf carts parked in it is particularly affecting – poor little thing.
Destruction in its artful form. Gorgeous photography but creepy at times.
They so perfectly tread the line between sadness and beauty, seeing the new life spring from the decay is particularly poignant too.
Incredible set of shots.
These are stunning. I have a little bit of an obsession with abandoned and decaying places. There are some remarkable photos of closed theme parks in Asia and abandoned Olympic facilities around the world.
If some of these buildings could nt be saved, wouldn’t you think they could save some of the beautiful old carvings or paintings?
I’m posting looks and beauty tips on my blog ! take a look:
There really is beauty in decay. Thank you for sharing! I especially love the last one!
Wow amazing! And inspirational!
I love places like that. Wonderful pics!!! Thanks for sharing 😀
Wonderful and sad pictures at the same time. The first one is amazing!
I saw Andrew Moore give a lecture about his work. It was really interesting to here him talk about his process. It made me appreciate his imagery more.
Great photos. It would be so much fun to have photo shoots at those locations.
These photos, beautiful as they are, made me angry. How such beauty can be abandoned and left . We live in a deposable world .
Wow these are sooo cool I love the feel of this photos. My favorites have got to be the theater with the sunbeam and the second last one with the pillars. Thanks for sharing!
Whenever I see these type of images, it always puts me in my place – we are part of nature, and nothing we do can stand totally against the power of nature. I’ve been to similar type places and photographed abandoned spaces – well, abandoned by people, but reclaimed and inhabited by nature.
