Romain Veillon’s shots of Kolmanskop, a German mining town in the Namibian desert, now almost lost amid the dunes are both beautiful and frightening. A selection of his works are currently on view at Le Musee de la Poste in Paris / Espace Niemeyer in “Time Suspended” an exhibition of photographs that explore deserted, disused, sacred and hidden venues around the world. These photographs of long-abandoned places from once-exquisite castles to crumbling theme parks and prisons all express natural melancholy.
