  • About the Artist

Photographer Wil Crooymans works with a select group of adventurous models to capture the magic of abandoned buildings in his own unique way. The beauty of the models is both in contrast and in harmony with dilapidated castles, dying industry and abandoned churches. Be moved by the beautiful photos of buildings, resisting the ravages of time, brought to life with feminine beauty.

 

"It all started in the spring of 2014 when I started working with a new camera. On the internet I came across urban exploring, also called urbex. This is photographing abandoned buildings that are usually left to their own devices. I saw the many beautiful photos and was immediately sold.I started looking for locations on the internet and soon visited an abandoned villa in Belgium, armed with a camera and tripod.

Quite exciting to enter an abandoned building without permission, but curiosity quickly trumps fear! Once inside I enter another world. A world of decay, with beautiful colors and details.

I was happy with the first results and received favorable reactions from my environment. Still, the photos were not finished for me and I was inspired to bring the building back to life with a model. A female model, vulnerable and naked, where the smooth skin contrasts with the rough walls and floors. Naked, so as not to relate to a particular culture and time.

Both the models and I enjoy every day that we can go out, with Abandoned Beauty pictures as a result! And we would like to share it with you!

 It's great to follow your passion!"
