While his crew is resting at the pool, pilot and photographer Henk Van Rensbergen leaves for an expedition to abandoned hotels, overgrown factories, or desolate, green places. Van Rensbergen always manages to see the beauty in decay, and the (international) press quickly gave him credit for it. "Haunting photographs" was the headline in The Wall Street Journal. The handy, pocket-sized book Abandoned Places shows the best from Abandoned Places 1, 2, 3 and The Photographer's Selection, completed with brand new material.
Henk Van Rensbergen is the pilot of a Boeing 787 and a pioneering Urban Explorer. For more than 25 years, he has been capturing the most beautiful pictures of abandoned places.
