Beauty In Decay

Looking at images of an abandoned doctor's house in Germany taken by photographer Daniel Marbaix prompts curiosity similar to that evoked by great historical sites.

Who were these people? Why did they leave in such a hurry? What happened here?

The once-grand house is badly dilapidated but its rooms still boast gorgeous fixtures and items inexplicably abandoned, suggesting a sudden flight from the home by its occupants.

It's the sheer amount of items remaining in the home that shed a little light on who the occupants were.

The most eerie sight of the house, and how it got its name, is the physician's exam room, complete with instruments and slices of kidney set between glass, ready to be examined.

Daniel Marbaix has a fascination with urban decay and the places abandoned during civilization's relentless march.

He says little is known about the home, but he says the home has been abandoned for at least 20 years.

The abandoned doctor's house forms part of Marbaix's book States of Decay which documents abandoned sites from all over Europe and North America.

More of Marbaix's work can be found on his Facebook account.

Three specters: These eerie skeletal images guide visitors up the stairway to the house's second floor.

Gorgeous isn't it ?
Don't get frightened...
