The art direction of The Last Of Us is arguably its greatest triumph: the broken down buildings, nature encroaching, reclaiming its territory. I remember wondering to myself: maybe it's all a little too pretty. Maybe The Last Of Us is too nostalgic in its recreation of civilisation in ruins, but this set of incredible real-life photographs suggests otherwise.
This set of photographs is titled Urban Ruins and they're jaw droppingly pretty. They're stylised to the point where, if you told me it was concept art for The Last Of Us, I'd probably believe you.
