Photographer Bob Thissen, 31, discovered the faded glamour of the site known as 'Hollywood in the Desert' earlier this month. Bob who has been an urban explorer, known as urbexing, for over ten years, discovered the sites on Google Earth and was uncertain whether they'd still be standing.

Bob from Heerlen, the Netherlands, said: "It was cool to find such a big movie set abandoned and left alone in the desert.
"It could easily become a part of a tour, we could simply walk in and find ourselves in a Greek environment.

"It looked like there had been multiple shoots, because the set were slightly different compared to the old pictures I had found - as there was an extra wall built.
"But it clearly wasn't used for a long time, a part of the set was already collapsed and another part was close to collapsing.

Several miles off-road into the desert, Bob discovered the 'forgotten sets' that had been abandoned and documented his finds.
Bob said: "To my surprise there was also a small village next to the Greek Temple, there you could find some houses, big walls with large gates and a bath house.

"The dome of the bath house was already collapsed and the interior was full of pigeon poo which really gave it an abandoned look.
