Beautiful ruins

Each of us understands the word “beautiful” in our own way. Someone likes to watch wildlife: flowers, butterflies, grasshoppers. Someone is looking for beauty exclusively in sick people. And someone finds a part of God's plan in the abandoned objects of human infrastructure. Such people are the members of the Artificial Owl collective blog.

But lately, at a time when the era of industrialization has passed into the era of post-industrialization, the fading of artificial objects created by people has become the object of close attention of artists of various ranks. Many photographers and photo artists are engaged in tracking abandoned architectural objects around the world and capturing the process of their destruction on film.

There are millions of such objects. All of them are potentially a source of inspiration for photographers at Artificial Owl. The main thing is to see the beauty even in the destroyed church - the only object that has survived from the city of San Juan Parangarikutiro after the volcanic eruption in 1943.
