Author Ransom Riggs wanted to make sure the setting for his upcoming novel
was true to life, so he travelled to Europe to find the kind of houses that were described in the pages of his book. When he stepped into these abandoned homes, he discovered something he never expected to see. Some of these homes, empty for decades, were completely undisturbed. If not for the thick dust coating everything, it'd be as if they were still lived in. Trinkets from a time long past littered the inside.
Riggs teamed up with urban explorer/photographer Martino Zegwaard
to photograph and document the inside of these homes. His intention was to show that these homes aren't rotting wastes of space, they're visual histories of the people who lived there.
What do you think of Rigg's idea? Do you think there's a beauty to these homes, or do you think they're a waste of space and could be used for better purposes? Let us know in the comments below, and as always make sure to share this video with your friends on Facebook!
