The Beauty Of The Forgotten: 20 Images of Abandoned Buildings

By EyeEm Team - 2 min read

Check out the highlights from our recent mission with The Huffington Post

It’s nearly Halloween, so what better time to share the highlights from our recent mission with The Huffington Post, Abandoned Buildings. We challenged you to capture the mystery of these derelict and creepy locations, and wow, what incredible results! We were really impressed at the quality of these images – whilst an abandoned building is not going to win a beauty contest, you did an amazing job of capturing their mystery and intrigue.

Huge congratulations to everyone who took part. A selection of photos will appear in the Moving Image series on The Huffington Post, as well as in Huffington, the iPad Magazine. In the meantime, enjoy our selection of highlights!
