I find astonishing and indescribable beauty in
wreckages of joylessly gray-coloured,
yet enchanting world of steel and concrete.
Ghosts of wicked times are calling for absolution.
Sit beside me, let's listen.
Matt, 20, Poland.

Thank you, Antonio! I fell in love with this devastated and robbed asylum on the first sight… even thought it took some blood as sacrifice. Not mine though ;)

themazette said: I appreciate very much your B/W photos... aestheticism in graphic desolation. I often went since a month to your blog there capturing all sensitive nostalgia. thank you for the eyes... And thank you to follow The Mazette... I'm honoured..Merci from South of Fance!
I believe that color is vital part of perpetuated beauty… Yet in soviet universe, desaturated since birth, there are qualities which define it way more completely. This is where black and white becomes not just a tool, but also a way to appreciate every aspect of austerity in this nostalgic world. Thank you for your wonderful photography! :)
Best wishes from South of Poland,

Thank you so much, Thomas!
A very stub of sovietgoner was photography folder I called 'Deer Zone'. The name was result of my fascination with universe of S.T.A.L.K.E.R and name of my city which can be translated as ‘Deer Hill’… Place surrounded by mountains, forest and hundreds of palaces. Place, where waits everything dear to me. Yet there is no room for any bourgeoisie here. Even fake one, like calling old driving school a palace :)
This is my tribute to city slowly dying right before my eyes.

It’s been long since I was that flattered! I simply believe urbex is as good as the story it’s able to tell. I keep in mind my photography will never be as powerful as history behind places I’ve explored. Sovietgoner is just a strive to be the best. And so is your work, just the same :)
I’ll be waiting for more of your adventures in abandoned world, Mary!
