Two years ago I met Yoerie Custers by chance and while we started talking I found out he was a photographer too. His biggest passion is going to abandoned places throughout Europe, to photograph the decayed beauty of neglected buildings. He also showed me his book ‘Journey to Forgotten Dreams’ containing his best works and an idea was born.

How will these places look when I edit animals into them?

Will the new inhabitants of these marvels simply be bypassers or will they stay and make thriving cities of nature's life.

Because of mankind, the animals have been pushed to live in the most abandoned regions of the earth. In search of places where men are rarer than animals.

I am very happy to tell you that this series ‘Marvels’, which was made in collaboration with Yoerie Custers has been awarded 1st Place in Fine Art in the International Photography Awards(IPA) 2019.

And perhaps it never would have happened if fate didn’t want us to meet each other two years ago.

    I see the “Dance of the Hours” segment in Disney’s Fantasia.

    What a shame these buildings are abandoned. The architecture is magnificent - such a waste.
