The UK Daily Mail has published a haunting new photo series by Dutch photographer Niki Feijen, depicting abandoned houses and buildings whose owners seem to have vanished, leaving most of their possessions still in place and untouched after many years.

Many of the pictures show beds made, clothes still hanging, dishes, toys and various personal effects in place; in many cases, only the moldy walls and crumbling plaster indicate that the occupants left ages ago.

Feijen's specialty is “urban exploration,” searching through Europe for abandoned, condemned and otherwise boarded-up houses and buildings. Once inside, the images he captures are often sad, beautiful and even nightmarish.

This series, from his new book Disciple of Decay, features abandoned family homes left mostly intact, while others show larger buildings and rooms in far worse shape.

Some of these could be fully-dressed horror movie sets, or seriously awesome album covers... and you wouldn't have to change a thing.
