These photos of Chinese theme parks that become ghost towns in the off-season are both creepy and serene
Photographer Stefano Cerio generally splits his time between Rome, Italy and Paris, France - but this past year he journeyed through China to explore its many and wildly popular amusement parks.
Cerio was curious about what these parks had to offer, but not in the way most visitors are.
Fascinated by the idea of "absence," he headed to the highest populated country in the world to document these parks when they were completely empty.
His new book, "Chinese Fun," offers a rare and desolate look at various Chinese amusement parks.
The results are both creepy and serene. See for yourself below.
