Biography: I am a Dutch photographer with a passion for the beauty of decay.
I explore the normally unseen or off-limit parts of urban areas or industrial facilities to make pictures of the beauty of natural decay, before they are trashed, demolished or renovated. These buildings can be hospitals, castles, manors, industrial buildings or private houses. Mostly the buildings are not freely accessible and visiting them is often dangerous.
