Urban decay is the process whereby a previously functioning city, or part of a city, falls into disrepair. It's essentially the art of capturing beautiful photographs of a subject that is inherently not beautiful, and - for those of us who live near a city - it can be an easy form of photography to explore. In today's showcase, we have collected 80 impressive examples of urban decay photography to encourage you to head out to the derelict parts of town!
Here is a collection of links to resources and tutorials elsewhere that can help you get started with this type of photography:
