Exploring Exploring the forgotten.. The other side... Since 7 years I've been exploring derelict building all over the world. Trying to photograph these places before they are completely gone gives me enormous satisfaction. When wandering here I try to think about what happened at some point, I try to bring history back to life if only for a short moment. Many of these places are filled with emotions, good and bad. I hope you can find a bit of that in my photos.Respect for these places is the most important rule of all. I will always leave everything like I found it. Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures. I often think about the people who lived here, perhaps they lost everything. Sometimes it's difficult to find out what really happened. Some people don't have this respect unfortunately. It's also for that reason I will never reveal any location to anyone. They stay hidden and hopefully safe!Almost every picture can be printed. If you have special demands please send me a message. All pictures are also available for calendars and other products.
