Abandoned Monuments by Jan Kempenaers


Photographer Jan Kempenaers has traveled throughout the Balkans to photograph these wild, strange structures that have lost much of their cultural relevance.  In various states of disrepair, these monuments  represent an era of modern and brutalist architecture that defined this time period in the socialist East.  Today, they appear alien, odd and empty, stark reminders of a struggle long since forgotten by a nation that no longer exists.
