Old stairs – discover the charm of the time

Today we have decided to show you something extraordinary – the fascination of old stairs. The photographer Christian Richter has discovered this unusual site of the stairs when he visited old uninhabited buildings. All photos are shot with a wide angle lens and the light is perfectly set. The result – beautiful, enchanted stairs, corridors and staircases. You can see all the traces of time and feel the nostalgia that prevails in these old buildings. Some of the staircases are wide and straight, another narrow and spiral.

The wood, wrought iron, or cast iron railings are partially or completely preserved and one has the feeling that they have been used recently. Here and there are seeing robust pillars or filigree, metal ornaments. Some floors are still well preserved tiles, parquet or concrete. Depending on what that is for a building, the stairs have their different charm. Particularly fascinating are the spiral stairs, taken from above, which are spiral and reminiscent of a snail. The photographer has increased half preserved objects as for example pianos recorded and so the melancholic mood of the images even some. How do you find these artistic shots? Can you feel also the transience and the nostalgia, we have felt?
