A few posts ago, I linked to some photos of abandoned buildings take by photographer Niki Feijen. I did some more wandering around and found his website with MORE awesome photos and a book of photos for sale. The book, being photos, is outside my price range, but I wanted to link to it in case any of y’all are in dire need of something this fabulous. Frozen is the name of the book and so far as I can tell, it can only be ordered via his website. Printed photos/books like this are very expensive when it comes to paper and print costs, and then there’s the travel, research and talent involved in obtaining the photos…which explains the cost of the book.
The good news is that there are some additional photos on his site you can browse through. Such inspiration!
There’s shots from an abandoned villa — and I can’t imagine why anyone would abandon it! It’s so gorgeous. I want to tour the place and make it the setting for a wonderful murder mystery!!!
He also has some photographs from the dead zone: Chernobyl.
Cover artists: He does sell individual photos for commercial work, however I am certain the prices are quite a bit higher than one would find work on the stock artwork photo places like DepositPhotos!!!
I also found this article fascinating: What if Barbie Dolls had normal figures? Artist Nicolay Lamm created a better barbie doll! Here’s some more pictures of regular type “us” dolls.
