Photography: Digital on Paper.
An abandoned manor house with a grand piano still inside, somewhere in france.
I took an interest in photography and the Urban Exploration movement in 2004 when I moved to Leipzig, which is a city very much defined by decay. I found endless opportunities to practise my skills in old GDR factories, obsolete power stations, schools and churches. Since then I made countless trips throughout Europe to find historic buildings that fascinated me.
In the beginning most of the people are astonished by the fact that seemingly intact buildings are just left to rot and they ask me why the places couldn’t have been saved. Usually they are also keen to know where the buildings are, which I of cause cant tell them to prevent the places from being vandalised or robbed.
Usually my pictures are described to be very emotional and romantic. They give most people the notion that everything is bound to end. When they look at my pictures they do see the beauty that was once there and how nature it slowly reconquering.
