Even oak furniture will not last for ever

Bas van der Poel

Honorable Mention

"Even oak furniture will not last for ever"
This shot is taken in Portugal in an completely abandoned villa.

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. The buildings I shoot can be hospitals, castles, manors, industrial buildings or private houses. These buildings are not freely accessible and visiting them is often dangerous.
