Matthias Haker has all different types of photography in his portfolio, but I’m particularly fond of his HD (often panoramic) images of decay.

Take me to these places…I want to stargaze and be alone with my thoughts…
Aaron J Groen juxtaposes the gorgeous vastness of the universe with transient human creations, subject to decay in what amounts to less than the proverbial blink of the universal eye.
The things we construct in this lifetime are of little grand consequence, yet they are everything to us. How can anyone not be awestruck when the makings of human life are set against a backdrop of the cosmos?

I just spent a while letting my eyes wander in Gerard Trignac’s galleries.
Much of his work is centered around architectural structures.
They are shadowy mixes of classic form and industrial grit, often devoid of human inhabitants; abandoned, yet complex and teeming with life.
Such beauty mingling with decay…

Let’s start with a little faux vintage science, shall we?
Let’s start with an amazing

Daniele Del Nero’s After Effects is a series of architectural scale models covered with black paper and flour…left to mold.
I always find it interesting when an artist purposely lets nature take its toll on pieces of work. Objects find themselves splashed with new life, new colors, as the process of decay takes over.
Del Nero states:
My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings are able to communicate.
