Damen Silos

A well known urbex site in Chicago are the so-called Damen silos, just off the Stevenson expressway and Damen Avenue. They’ve gained notoriety recently after filming was done here for Transformers: Shia LaBeouf: ReBeouf. At least I think that’s what it was. Some elements of the silos were removed during the filming, making for a tougher explore, but they were still worth a visit.



Skyline Framed.






In the next post I’ll have pictures from the interior, which include some rather creepy evidence of recent squatters.

  1. Great shots. The parallax that the lens causes is really apparent when looking at your first photo. It creates a surreal state.

      Thanks. Yeah, I thought about straightening the shift, but decided to keep it as is, Falling silos are more dramatic.
