Urban decay photography clearly tells a story using what remains, or doesn’t remain, of a structure. Every concrete stain and peeling wall takes on significance and creates an atmosphere whether it be cheerful or dreary. These photos can also be composed to invoke fear or nerves in an onlooker whether it be a dental chair alone in the dark or a rehab pool resting in a sterile room.
