PetaPixel: Photographer Turns Abandoned Monuments into Futuristic Art

PetaPixel: Photographer Turns Abandoned Monuments into Futuristic Art. “Yang Xiao is a self-described urban explorer, traveler, designer, and architectural and light painting photographer. Originally from China but currently based in Spain, Yang used her project, ‘Eternal Monuments in the Dark,’ to combine her all her passions — travel, light-painting photography, and grand architectural pieces from past generations. It took her nine years to collect imagery from over 40 countries with the common denominator of abandoned monumental and architectural pieces, designed in brutalist and Soviet modernist style, which became popular in the post-war period.”
