Photos Of Abandoned Houses Overtaken By Wild Animals

In his photo series ‘Once Upon a Home’, Finnish photographer Kai Fagerström ventured into abandoned houses in the woods, where he captured wild animals reclaiming the once man-occupied space.

According to Bored Panda, these houses were located near his family’s summer home, and were abandoned by their tenants after the owner died in a fire.

“Deserted buildings are so full of contradiction,” said Fagerström. “I am fascinated by the way nature reclaims spaces that were, essentially, only ever in loan to humans.”

This insightful series features adorable woodland creatures such as raccoons, squirrels, mice and ferrets.

Check out some of his images below:
