Beauty of Decay

Series of 45 photographs

My name is Roman, a 33-year-old urban photographer and award-winning photographer born and raised in the enchanting south of the Netherlands. I take unique photos of undisclosed abandoned places. When I started my journey in urban photography, I mostly saw empty, abandoned and decaying buildings. It didn't take long for curiosity to strike me. What was the story behind these buildings? Who lived there? What were these items used for and why were they dropped? This curiosity created a close link between me and urban photography and I have since visited so many beautiful places around the world. The opportunity to take a look behind closed doors is a truly unique experience, both relaxing and enticing. I immerse myself in the environment, but I also watch each step and listen carefully to each sound, trying not to attract attention. I specialize in the unique capture of interiors and exteriors of a variety of buildings, working only with natural light.
