Paul Kranzler is known for his visually stunning portrait work but there’s another series of photos he should gain equal praise for: Abandoned Schools. This somewhat-dark and mysteries collection of snaps show us what schools look like when the buildings they’re houses in go neglected for months, even years. It’s not as creepy as an abandoned hospital or mental institution but it’s still a little weird.

Based in Austria, this photographer studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and has been awarded a slew of awards, including Outstanding Artist Award for Photography by the Austrian Ministry of Culture & the Arts in 2013.
