I like to think that my descendents will live for thousands of years after I’m gone. But what if that doesn’t happen?
Maybe humans will live on, but they’ll leave this planet behind. What will things look like?
Special thanks espcially to Vasily Kumaev & Andrew Mishin, who have been documenting a huge number of Russian abandoned structures and publishing their panoramic photos on 360 Cities. Their work has brought a new depth of beauty to 360 Cities.
