I Photographed 15 Abandoned Living Rooms In Europe

The photos have been taken between 2013 and 2016 in several countries throughout Europe. The locations in this set have often been abandoned for many years. Decay is kicking in heavy which I love to capture in my photos. Most of these places still have (parts of) furniture inside which is amazing to see. Different then other articles I have posted I’ve shared a couple of close-up shots now.

I’m fascinated by the objects that have been left behind. There is a lot of antique furniture in some of the rooms and these rooms carry a lot of history. I want to share the rooms that I run into on a ‘regular’ day of exploring. Next to that it’s also very interesting to imagine what happened in the rooms. For example, in one of the photos there is a hole in the ceiling or the floor. I’d be very interested to know the story behind that.

Once inside I like to stand in the room, in complete silence, and take a good look around me. ‘Feeling’ the room and the emotions. Reflect that in my processing. Trying to figure out what happened here. Sometimes I’m aware of the history of the place on forehand which makes it easier and even more interesting.

The photo in the header of this article is a photo of the living room in an abandoned French castle. The castle has been built in the 18th century. During World War I the castle was occupied by Germans and it got damaged due to bombings. After the World War the castle got restored. At the end of the 20th century the castle became abandoned and its current state is very poor. It’s currently owned by a French lawyer and rumour goes he’s a collector of war- / historical items.
