The Beelitz documentary is a comprehensive image collection of the abandoned Beelitz Heilstätten Sanatorium in Germany. The project is fully sanctioned by the property's owner and shows the final state of decay before the buildings underwent a re-utilization and remodel process shortly after the images were taken. The portraits are aiming to convey the architectural beauty and humanitarian values applied at this site.
