Paris-based photographer Thomas Jorion is a treasure hunter, photographing urban ruins and giving new life to dying buildings. In his wonderful series Forgotten Palaces, which we first spotted over at Faith is Torment, Jorion captures abandoned and decaying villas and castles in Switzerland, Italy and Germany, their splendor shining dimly through the rubble, reminding us that no beauty is meant to last, but rather transforms as time goes on. Click through to see a few of our favorites from the series, and then be sure to head over to Jorion’s website to check out even more of his work.
