Kuriositas presents images of abandoned urban spaces. Pretty haunting stuff. I’ve got mixed feeling about what ‘ruin porn’ represents but I can’t deny that I find it aesthetically arresting. Maybe it’s just because it’s such a brutal reminder of our own mortality and the steady march of entropy and decay.
