Exploring “Ghost City” (город-призрак) in Seredinkovo, Russia
For more bizarre and beautiful photos from “Ghost City” in Seredinkovo, explore the Город Призрак location page.
Old taverns, abandoned docks and ghost ships are all part of “Ghost City” (город-призрак), a park located in the small town of Seredinkovo in the Russian countryside. The park premises were originally constructed as a Russian movie set in 2010, and were designed to look like an 18th-century European city. Now open to the public, the former film set allows visitors to explore the “city” and dress up in period costumes. With replicas of prisons, gallows, hotels, cemeteries, a fort and more, the park offers opportunities to capture time-worn landscapes for visitors and Instagrammers alike.

As archaeologists continue to clear dirt and stone slabs from the entrance of a huge tomb in Greece, excitement is building over what excavators may find inside.
The monumental burial complex — which dates back to the fourth century B.C., during the era of Alexander the Great — is enclosed by…
Ever stop to wonder why we put so much importance on age? There’s an age to drive, age to drink, age to vote, age of consent, age to join the military which at any time means you can be sent out to kill or be killed by total strangers, age of retirement, etc etc. So many things based on age. But…
Celebrating 175 Years of Photography in All Its Forms

On August 19, 175 years ago, Frenchman Louis Daguerre announced he had created the first permanent photographic process.
The same year, British inventor Sir Henry Fox Talbot unveiled a series of photographs made using the calotype process years earlier, famously capturing the first photographic negative of the latticed window at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, England. The daguerreotype and calotype processes went on to create the type of photos we take today.
This weekend, a group of Instagrammers celebrated the anniversary by exploring the overlap between old and new forms of photography in a daylong workshop at The Photographers’ Gallery (@thephotographersgallery) in London. Armed with vintage instant film cameras and Impossible Project (@impossible_hq) film, the group took photos with both smartphone and analog film on a photowalk around Soho before decamping to experiment with techniques in printing their Instagram photos using instant film.
“People enjoy seeing an image being created right in front of their eyes, so there’s a natural synergy between Instagram and instant film,” says InstaMeet organiser Tom Skipp (@tomskipp). “It was great to be able to share these moments with people that are so passionate. Seeing and sharing an image developing is a beautiful thing, like the original Instagram!”
