SPOOKY images have revealed the inside of a mysterious Doctor’s home and surgery which is still littered with belongings and surgical equipment almost thirty years after his death.
The haunting series of pictures show the lower floor of the building which was used by Urologist, Doctor Klaus Kraft. Dusty tubes of human kidney samples, rusting utensils and a mouldy treatment chair remain in the dilapidated surgery and medical scrubs still hang on the walls.
In contrast, images of the upper floors feature a grand piano with discoloured sheet music and a guitar propped against it. Other snaps show a glamourous spiral stair case with wallpaper peeling from the walls and a taxidermist’s stuffed fox.
In other photographs, beautiful dresses adorn the walls and a spooky black and white portrait of a woman sits on a filthy windowsill.
The images were taken by urban explorer, Sascha Jung in Nord Hessen, Germany. Sascha used a Canon EOS 70D camera to capture the shots.
“My favourite photo is the one with the four glass containers of kidneys,” said Sascha.
“I find it fascinating that these were left but it’s disgusting at the same time.
“I wonder what the doctor used his equipment for and how it was used in the practice.”
It is speculated that the building was the home and private workplace of Urologist, Doctor Klaus Kraft who lived and worked there with his wife. After his death in 1988, it is unknown whether the building was used as a surgery again.
“I love being in deserted locations, the atmosphere, the smell and the silence is incredible,” said Sascha.
“Nature eventually brings back what was once hers and makes you look at it relentlessly.
“When I show people my pictures they are so excited and can’t believe that these places exist.
“I am constantly looking for new abandoned places and make it my passion to visit a new place every weekend.”
