i don’t know about you, but i get a little anxious about entering abandoned buildings by myself. that’s why i am thoroughly enjoying the spectacular light and composition in this haunting series of decaying interiors from intrepid local artist eric holubow. having grown up in an urban environment, eric says that he’s always been attracted to modern architectural ruins like these, and can see rich beauty in unraveling and disintegration. once you see the stories told in these pieces, you wouldn’t even consider arguing the point.

    that’s my kind of voyeurism! i could stare at these photos all day. so rich in detail, so moody, so full of stories… love that.
