Such words of appreciation are grandest compliment any photographer could ever receive. There is no way way to express my gratitude… I’ll do it in every photograph I post.

Scott, thank you!

Yeah, at first I was mad at that damn lack of any light in the scene, as I refuse to use any flash… But I guess darkness is my loyal companion :)

Thank you so much!

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… Thank you, Antonio!

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,

Deer Zone

With two latest pictures, 'Foreboding' and ‘Palace’ we have left green paradise of jewish cemetery, as we head to visit two temples of decay and soviet dystopia found in my hometown.

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!

Thank you,

~Matt
