As far as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by abandoned places, so there’s no surprise that after a few childhood urban explorations, I decided to take a camera with me to bring back memories of my trips.

I started giving more and more importance to the place I was shooting to get the satisfaction of perfectly capturing the spirit of the abandoned homes I was visiting. It has been nearly three years now that I travel around Europe to find and capture these beautiful houses and amazing locations. From communist relics in Bulgaria or Hungary to the incredible haunted houses and palaces in Italy passing by the tremendous factories and power plants in France or Belgium, I try to grasp the esthetic beauty that emerges from the chaos of urban decay.

I love when nature takes over human constructions which creates a unique and unreal atmosphere. It puts in perspective our presence on earth and reminds us that we are only passers-by. For me, it’s like traveling in time. Every room in these cool photos is special and has its own history.
