THE WORLD’S MOST DEPRESSING PLACES

The World’s Most Depressing Places

Damien Rudd is a 33-year-old Australian behind the Instagram account called “Sad topographies” where he collects Google Maps screenshots of the world‘s most depressing sounding places. It all began by accident when Damien Rudd was searching for something and suddenly discovered Mount Hopeless in Australia.
Rudd now has a pretty big collection of world’s most joyless locations and he’s put them all into a book of hand-drawn maps, together with their fascinating etymologies. When asked about his favorites, Damien replied: “Probably the ones in Antarctica are the most interesting. There is Shapeless Mountain which was named as none of the exploring party could agree on its shape. So shapeless was Shapeless Mountain that when a later expedition attempted to climb it, they scaled the wrong mountain entirely – which they then in turn named Mistake Mountain. There is also a Wrong Peak, which earned its name in under similar circumstances. In 1963 Recoil Glacier was named by a geologist who was said to have “recoiled in disgust” at finding nothing of interest there.”
