About 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas is an abandoned mining town called Rhyolite, which is known as one of the most photographed ghost towns in the West. The town rose to prominence in the early 1900s, thanks to a profitable gold rush, but it wasn't long before those profits dried up, and the population dropped from the thousands to a big fat zero.
As we spotted over on Shellhawk's Nest, late Belgian artist Albert Szukalski used Rhyolite to play host for a haunting series of sculptures, which played up the small town's status as a 'ghost town.' Titled 'The Last Supper' and 'Ghost Rider' (above), the unique sculptures were created by draping plaster-soaked burlap over live models, leaving behind ghostly figures that defy gravity by standing on their own.
After Szukalski passed away in 2000, the location was turned into the Goldwell Open Air Museum, where several artists have since contributed their own pieces to the collection.
A visit to Rhyolite, Nevada is one for the bucket list, that's for damn sure!
Virtually head over to Helltown, Ohio, for more abandoned creepiness!
