Life Without Man: A Tour Around Abandoned Places

A while ago Youth Time held a photo contest on the theme of "The world without man”. The competition has caused a considerable stir among photographers who love the undiscovered. We have received pictures from Latin America, the United States, Britain, France, the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia and Georgia. Therefore we have chosen best images, which, in our opinion, are the best and most worthy of attention. Welcome to our photo tour of those corners of our planet, from which civilization is gradually disappearing.
