Fascinating Photos of Europe’s Perishing Palaces: “Ghosts of former landlords silently echoing riches-to-rags tales we’ll never know”

by David Solomonoff

Remarkable images of decaying European villas by Mirna Pavlovic go on display at the Museum of Arts and Crafts, Zagreb.

The combination of luxury and decay is equally appealing and off-putting. Whether it’s shabby-chic, faded Hollywood glamor, or the staunch-yet-penniless vibe of the heroines in Grey Gardens, it seems society has always had a complex, car-crash attitude towards people and places that have gone downhill. Mirna Pavlovic‘s photo series Dulcis Domus documents our uneasy relationship with the recent past through images of abandoned mansions, decaying villas, and disintegrating palaces of Europe, with the ghosts of former landlords silently echoing riches-to-rags tales we’ll never know.
