Wrecks Photography – the Memorable Remnants of the Former Glory

It must be a trait of the human character to be captivated and even magnified with the pictures of some drama, tragedy, or sorrow. Our attention is often easily caught by somebody’s sad life story, shocking experience, and dangerous situation. It looks like negative things occurring in our lives tend to cause deeper feelings and stronger emotions than the good ones. And in fact, this may be the most important feature of the human soul, because it gives raise to sympathy, it makes us feel the need to help, support, and comfort somebody in trouble. And that is actually humanism, which makes us humans.

Photographers from different parts of the world cannot remain indifferent if they witness the consequences of tragedies that happened to somebody. They try to capture that moment of grief on their photos and share it with others. Our “Wreck photography” gallery has collected the images one can meditate and think over. They will tell you the stories of the cars left to become the homes for rich herbs; the tragedies of the crashed helicopters; or about once majestic and proud ships, which furrowed the seas some time ago, but now doomed to end their days in the dunes of sands. And these stories are not just about the machines – they are also about people’s lives, which are full of changes, sometimes for better and sometimes for worse…
