This light installation in the desert (near Joshua Tree, CA) transforms a 70-year-old abandoned homesteader shack with light & mirrors. "During the day, the structure reflects its surroundings through mirrors placed in both the shack’s openings and some of the boards on the walls." At sunset, light seeps from the shack.

Svínafellsjökull glacier in Skaftafell, Iceland The blue Crystal Cave ice cave is illuminated by the evening sun in Svinafellsjokull in Skaftafell, Iceland. Created by the forces of the Vatnajokull ice cap in the south of the volcanic island, the deep blue cave was formed by the glacier meeting the coastline. The centuries-old ice that has come from the slopes of 6,921 feet tall Oaefajokull, Iceland's tallest active volcano, has compressed all air out of the ice adding to the texture and colour of the cave.... cave is accessible through a 22 foot entrance on the shoreline in Skaftafell national park.

Thomas Jorion Professional photographer and fine art photography - Scalone
A grand staircase lies in ruins - the steps have crumbled; its ornate railings covered in dust. On the decaying, bare walls, a splash of coloured panelling provides the last vestige of splendour. This once-great Italian villa would most likely have been home to nobility during the Renaissance - but now, it and many others have been abandoned. To document their sad demise, photographer Thomas Jorion has roamed the country for his series, entitled Forgotten Palaces. (excellent link! ~ SW)

For his Forgotten Palaces series, Paris-based photographer Thomas Jorion toured the decaying grandeur of abandoned mansions in Italy, Switzerland and Germany. While the photos spotlight peeling paint, crumbling moulding, and empty fireplaces, each photo is clearly a portrait of the settings unseen: the chromatic entryways, the lustrous iron stairwells, and the ballrooms and banquet halls of an alternate, aristocratic universe.

Thomas Jorion explores abandoned villas and castles in Italy, Switzerland and Germany for his new gallery series, Forgotten Palaces.
t is estimated that there are at least 300 buildings like these, forgotten, by European villas. "My work is based on the perception we have of the time. I travel the world with an idea in mind, which is to find timeless islands within closed and abandoned places, "explains on its website. Thomas Jorion
