Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione paints distorted shadows on the walls and floors of abandoned buildings for his 1000 Shadows project. When he adds his artistic touch to a crumbling psychiatric hospital, it looks like the patients' lost souls are forever trapped within its walls.

Baglione traveled to Parma, Italy, for this portion of his series. The photos themselves aren't great, but you can just imagine how unnerving it would be for an urban explorer to stumble upon these twisted shadows. You can see more of his 1000 Shadows and other work on Instagram.
