I became known for my work on forgotten pianos in abandoned places across Europe. During my requiem for pianos, I sometimes find abandoned places with former owners' personal belongings left behind. It seems as if time had stopped at a specific moment there.

I dive into the spaces that everyone thinks are empty. I wander there for hours on end. The aim of my art is to find those elements of life that people consider to be dead and capture them with my camera.

The trompe l'oeil painting is amazing... but rather than a "castle", the iconography seems to suggest the Jewish faith, I'm wondering if perhaps some type of ritual bathing space, such as for women after menstruation/childbirth.

As nicely looking as the image is, that's the worse place and way to put a bathtub for a practical use.

I saw a chair for sale that looked exactly like the one on the right. I’m so glad that kind of style is making a comeback.

The drawing is amazing. But the flag is a new addition, colors are way brighter than they should be, not faded and not dusted at all.

Imagine what it looked like when it was at it's finest; filled with high-class men and women in expensive clothing. Like something out of Anastasia.

Wonder if at some point they had a tree in the salon or it grew by himself as mother nature and time took over.

This room alone is bigger than my whole house. Also the optical illusion: is the ceiling going up or connecting the walls?
