20 pictures of abandoned places in France

Roman Robroek has spent the last five years exploring and photographing abandoned buildings in France. Roman says that some places are more difficult to access than others, but he usually finds an open window he can climb into or a hole he can crawl through.

If a building is closed, he'll simply walk away and move onto the next one. "That's part of the game," Roman said.

Here's a selection of his finest shots...
