Haunting photos of a plane wreck by Jan Erik Waider

These photos by Jan Erik Waider are chilling and moody. Featuring what appears to be an abandoned US Navy plane, the series takes us inside and outside the plane as it sits alone in a black and white wasteland somewhere in Iceland.

I love the texture of the aging paint on the outside of the plane. It feels almost like an old sailors skin with fading tattoos and symbols, an external history of the barren structure’s past life.
