Photographer Timm Suess is passionate about capturing decay in our world. He travels to abandoned factories, clinics, and military installations to photograph the places people leave behind.

In a talk at TEDxGundeldingen, Suess details his Chernobyl Journal: a project that led him to the city of Pripyat, Ukraine, which was abandoned after the Chernobyl disaster.

Above, photos from the project, which documents places lost to the disaster.

I fucking love the Chernobyl incident and deserted creepy ass places 😍👌

“Terms such as “heartache” and “gut wrenching” are more than mere metaphors: they describe the experience of both physical and emotional pain. When we feel heartache, for example, we are experiencing a blend of emotional stress and the stress-induced sensations in our chest—muscle tightness, increased heart rate, abnormal stomach activity and shortness of breath. In fact, emotional pain involves the same brain regions as physical pain, suggesting the two are inextricably connected.” - x

Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
