Abandoned buildings, dismissed factories, wasted hospitals...
Henk van Rensbergen photos are an exciting portrait of absence.
Objects, volumes, bare shapes surviving to time. Photos of emotions.














What is urban exploration?... a way of seeing the city by its hidden
side. Technical galleries, attics, construction places, roofs, all those 
"No Entry" places form a sort of parallel deserted town...

Chronicles of the Disused



Shots of the action of time on old houses in Spain.
How disuse changes destiny of things.
From Zaragoza, Jorge Soriano.






Desolation - Edifici abbandonati


When people disappear objects take new meanings, more
agreeing to their estetic shape, deprived of all connection to
human use. In this death grows up a new unusual, distorted
unforeseeable life. This site is dedicated to all those objects.


From Iceland the suggestive site of Nokkvi Eliasson: B/W
as a dramatic balance between light & shadows, land & sky...

Deserted Farms






Modern ruins



   " When first visiting ruins I realized that abandoned buildings
     had an interest and meaning that overrul the original design
     intent, that in fact they had become something quite different…"

Shadows of Time. Hollow skeletons or downsized ugly creatures with bulgy eyes... Everywhere we can find lost footprints of civilization. Cement, metal and dust not claimed by anyone. An illusion of eternity.  From Russia the cold eye of Uryevich.

Jundl photography is intuition. Intuition of shapes,
light effects, messages in nature and simple things. 

Photography like a journey through emotions.
