These haunting scenes of industrial decay were captured by Italian photographer Fabrizio Cerroni. Documenting the relationship between the crumbling modern ruins depicted and the desolate landscapes that surround them, Cerroni’s striking photographs range from abandoned facilities where rusting rails – sunk into concrete floors – lie silent and giant power stations loom over the surrounding countryside, to vast mechanical wrecks that look like the dystopian relics of some lost alien planet.

Rome-born Fabrizio Cerroni graduated from the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Roma Tre in 2004. The self-taught photographer has been taking pictures since 1997. His urbex photography has been featured in various publications including La Repubblica. The images published here were published in his Industrial Decay set.

    Is there anything quite as sad as a once mighty industrial establishment now fallen into ruin? It’s the reason I got into this website

    Totally agree with you.

    I went to an old Hydro-electric plant in France when I was there in March. It was the first one ever built in that country, it’s now fallen into disuse and disrepair. I’ll send the photos in I think

    It’s amazing how many places like that are just decaying away across the countryside. Would be fascinating to see the photographs!

  • Adjudant

    I have submitted them to this site 🙂

  • Tom

    Great stuff and sorry for my absent-mindedness 🙂 Stand by!

  • Adjudant

    Oh I wasn’t expecting any sort of immediate action, I was just letting you know that I had just done it then

  • Adjudant

    Did you ever receive them?
