Eerie, Beautiful Photos of Abandoned Churches

Photographer and artistic director Francis Meslet, who we discovered on Fubiz, roams Europe capturing photos of abandoned sites and sanctuaries. Meslet’s series of churches, chapels, and other religious spaces caught our attention for the stunning combination of stained glass, rotting wood, and historical elements. Also, there’s just something really spooky about a crumbling church. ’Tis the season.
