Here is the story of Jonk, a French photographer from Paris,who travels all over the Europe to find abandoned places. In these forgotten schools, churches, castles, theaters he finds unique atmospheres, where the passage of time, often even the nature that takes back its rights, creates a poetry and a very particular soul. These pictures narrate the memory of the places, the moment where an activity stopped, where a destiny tumbled. They tell a unique experience: the one of time.

Most of these places are private properties, with complicated and often dangerous access and in which the conditions for taking pictures are often difficult. For two years, he roamed through England, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Switzerland, and Ukraine.
