Yang Xiao, an urban explorer, designer architectural photographer, originally from China but based in Spain published her photography taken all around the world (mainly ex-Yugoslavia, ex-Soviet Union, and East European countries) of abandoned buildings and monuments that were left neglected or abandoned into breathtaking pieces of futuristic architectural art with different lights and colours.  This project is called “Eternal Monuments in the Dark”.

It has taken Yang over 9 years to collect the imagery from over 40 countries around the world. Xiao chose to follow the common denominator of Soviet modernist style architecture when choosing her location for the projects.
