Gr8at: Hidden Worlds Photography

I spotted this Hidden Worlds competition from the website Photocrowd, where those entering were asked to “look at architecture from a different perspective and reveal places where we can escape or let our imagination run free”. Such a creative prompting received all manners of interpretation. Below are my favourite eight. Do you have a favourite? What theme do you think would make a great idea for a photographic competition?


This extraordinary shot by Kyle Damon Parr shows the creative possibilities of light and shadow in a forgotten tunnel.

This seeming photo within a photo of a photo of a photo Ansazi pubelo in Mesa Verdi was shot by Pavel Pesek.


Erika Eros saw the artistic and futuristic imagery within a Romanian salt mine.


PhotoByjewell sneaked into a factory in Atlanta that once used to serve the community with food and water. She was rewarded with a photograph that is a wonderful mix of dark and light and nature and nature and faded industry.


This setting may appear out of a Goonies adventure, but it was in fact shot by Ville Bogdanoff in a dead Sequoia tree in Yosemite National Park.


Owzat? Matthew Dartford shows us what remains of Guist Cricket Pavilion in this beautiful tribute to the past.


Has a closed underground station ever looked more striking? Susan took this shot at the out of use Aldwych tube station in London.

  1. Wow that caving expedition shot and the dead Sequoyah tree ones are magnificent. As is the first one of the tunnel, nearly forgot about that too!
