Old buildings, abandoned hospitals, industrial palaces overgrown with plants and trees, the remaining walls decorated with graffiti, smashed windows, rain dripping through the roof...
These places have become hard to find, difficult (or illegal) to access, dangerous to explore ... great to spend the day !
Today, the pyramids of the industrial revolution just uselessly stand in the way, they're a scar in the landscape. The deafening noises have been replaced by silence, but if you listen carefully they will tell you their story.
Abandoned hospitals where you can still smell the anxiety of the ill, where you can hear the coughing of the TBC infected and where once doctors and nurses walked through the shiny corridors.
A 100 years old hotel, standing proudly at the waterfront, arrogantly overlooking the beach and fiercely withstanding all the storms of the past century, a decayed symbol of wealth for the rich.
Why are abandoned places so attractive ?

I was born on august 22nd 1968 in Brussels, Belgium.
At age 16 I got my first reflex camera (a pentax program A) and at age 20 I made my first photos at the Buda Marly plant (and got arrested straight away).
Professionally I've been a pilot since age 22, first on the Boeing 737, then 767 and also the airbus 320.
I flew as a captain on the a320 until Sabena (Belgium's national carrier) went bancrupt in 2001.
Now I'm flying the boeing 767 for HollandExel (dutch charter company), flying mainly long haul destinations.
