Fan of abandoned & creepy places? You are going to enjoy this one!
We are aware of the fact that some photographers love capturing the beauty of the environment, or the beauty of the world! They find it soothing and entertaining. Whereas there are also photographers who love to capture the beauty of divine and old buildings! They don’t like to opt for the conventional shots. Be it for the love of architecture, travel or cultural heritage, these old and deserted buildings are usually telling a story. A photographer named Roman Robroek, is doing such work which this a mixture of beauty and horror! He travels far and wide and goes to abandoned buildings to capture the perfect shots!
Buildings can be abandoned due to several reasons. Maybe a natural disaster hit that place and took away all the life of that place or it could be far from the reach of people. The walls of a building tell the stories of these unique places. Robroek captures the beauty of these places and also tries his best to capture the stories these places have to tell.
During an interview with Robroek, he said that “I find it important to document a small piece of history that way and open the door for people to peek inside the buildings that they normally wouldn’t see”. Further, he added, “Next to that, I’m a huge fan of the old architecture in general. Modern architecture is not my thing. This way the old architecture won’t be forgotten.”
Now the question is, how does he even manage to find such abandoned places? I mean, it certainly isn’t an easy task to find such places. However, we came to know that Roman has been utilizing Google Streetview to discover Churches, virtually. But wait, that’s just not it, he even checks the newspapers every day to see the mentions of decaying old buildings. Wow! Now that’s called dedicatedly pursuing your obsession. Last but not the least, he has a group of trust colleagues who share the same passion, of course, and they work together to find such places!
“It’s important to know who you can trust because there is nothing worse than a location getting vandalized, robbed out or sprayed with graffiti because it became too popular to visit.”
