There’s something coldly beautiful about these Brutalist post-war concrete monuments (spomeniks), dotted around former Yugoslavia in Eastern Europe, painstakingly tracked down and photographed by Jan Kempenaers.

See more of the series here, and there’s a great article on their creation and documentation here.

    I love these – especially the last one. Would love to know where they are!

    I am proud to say that I live in Macedonia -this is one of the former Yugoslavian states and I love watching these monuments.
