Abandoned Interiors by Dan Marbaix

Risking his life of being caught by the police 20 times already and once pointed with a gun to his head; photographer Dan Marbaix still keeps on breaking into abandoned interiors to capture it’s forgotten beauty through the art of photography. Visiting unknown sites in the UK and around Belgium; he never once revealed where these photos were taken, but even without the context, the content is enough to fulfill the mind with limitless imaginations. Whether its ex homes, factories, schools, or other institutions, all the images are tuned and taken with a melancholic romance; beautiful but sad with its lack of life.

Not only am I mesmerized with the subject matter and angles of the shoot; I am especially intrigued by the colour tones of each photo. They are creepy only because they depict the raw and the unused; but strong sources of light and colors still consumes the frame, creating a tension pulling contrast that is particularly amazing about his images. Nevertheless one would anticipate or quickly fill in a human being within each frame, imagining how their story started and ended up; I personally see the frames strong by themselves, with the items depicted encompassing a life and history strong enough to fill each image with immense emotions and history.
