Life After The Apocalypse: Russian Artist Vladimir Manyuhin Gives A Stark View Of The Future (PICTURES)

Decaying, overgrown and deserted, these nightmarish visions of the future are the eerie brainchild of Russian photographer Vladimir Manyuhin.

Manyuhin uses photo manipulation to create a fantasy wasteland, reminiscent of how the earth could be if there was no one left to populate it.

Times Square, forever associated with bustle, taxis, crowds and light displays is a rusting car lot, with tufts of grass where tourists once roamed.

The Kremlin sprouts from a countryside like a fairy castle surrounded by creeping foliage, while the Lincoln Memorial sits draped in vines, like an arcane monument in a lost city.

Entitled Life After The Apocalypse, the collection of images were created using Photoshop and 3DMax.
