Neglected

My second abandoned series, shot in locations across Europe, from Poland and France to Italy and the UK. Looking more at palaces and grand buildings, this was a year long creation.

This was the natural progression of my work, starting to inject colour and tones back into images as I progressed and grew with experience.

Series creation: 2016.

The Space Expedition

An amazing art-deco control room in Budapest, Hungary - this gem was being looked after and has made many appearance on the cinema screen over the last decade. However in recent times it seems like the interest in it has moved away and once again this room lays in silence.
